Therefore, the 13 days on the occasion of the Camp David agreement were considered a success. Partly because of Carter`s determination to reach an Israeli-Egyptian agreement, a full two-week promise for a single international problem. In addition, Carter benefited from an entirely promised U.S. foreign team. Similarly, the Israeli delegation, along with Ministers Dayan and Weizman, as well as legal experts Dr. Meir Rosenne and Aharon Barak, had a stable of excellent talent. In addition, the absence of the media contributed to the success of the agreement: there was no possibility for any of the leaders to reassure his political body or be pushed to draw conclusions by members of his opposition. A possible breakdown of negotiations by one of the two leaders would have proved catastrophic, which would have led to guilt for the failure of the summit and a separation of the White House. In the end, neither Bégin nor Sadat were prepared to risk these eventualities. Both had invested huge amounts of political capital and time to reach an agreement.  In any event, the autonomy talks for the West Bank and Gaza have made little progress, either because Washington has stopped exerting diplomatic pressure, as Carter believes, or because the agreement had not resolved crucial issues.
The U.S. tried to win the participation of Palestinians living in the West Bank, but it largely stood firm because the P.L.O. refused to support a process that did not recognize the group`s claim to represent the Palestinians. For its part, Israel has refused to accept proposals that could jeopardize its settlement program or its ability to claim sovereignty over the territories. President William J. Clinton Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak, President of the Palestinian Authority Yasser Arafat, met between July 11 and 24 under the auspices of President Clinton, Prime Minister Barak, and President Arafat at Camp David to reach a permanent status agreement. Although they were unable to fill in the gaps and reach an agreement, their negotiations were unprecedented, both in scope and in detail. Building on the progress made at Camp David, the two leaders agreed on the following principles to guide their negotiations: but the exhausted president and his advisers still had the final to play. Vance and Carter met with Bégin, Israeli Foreign Ministers Moshe Dayan and Barak until after midnight on the 12th day. Only Barak and Dayan took notes. M. Carter urged Bégin to halt the construction of new settlements in the West Bank during negotiations over the West Bank and Gaza.
Bégin said something that Carter accepted. 5. All the autonomy clauses of the agreement are de facto sanctification of the crew with a new form. . . .
