During the summer of 1975, Secretary of State Kissinger works diligently to secure another military disengagement agreement between Israel and Egypt. President Ford leans his presidential weight to the process in meeting with Sadat and Rabin separately. The agreement is significant because it places truce observers in demilitarized portions of Sinai, further reducing the chance of renewed Egyptian-Israeli conflict. The US makes promises for assistance to Israel and Egypt, and that the PLO could not participate in future talks unless it changes its political outlook toward Israel. (source)
