WASHINGTON, UNITED STATES:  This file photo shows Egyptian President Anwar al-Sadat (back to camera) and Israeli Premier Menachem Begin embracing, 18 September 1978, after signing a peace agreement in the East Room of the White House as US President Jimmy Carter looks on. A year later, with the help of Carter, terms of peace between Egypt and Israel were negotiated at Camp David. A formal treaty, signed 26 March 1979 in Washington, D.C., granted full recognition of Israel by Egypt, opened trade relations between the two counties, and limited Egyptian military buildup in the Sinai. Israel agreed to return to final portion of occupied Sinai to Egypt.   On 11 October 2002 Carter was awarded the 2002 Nobel Peace Prize for years of tireless effort as an international mediator. Carter, 78, was honoured for "his decades of untiring effort to fin peaceful solutions to international conflicts, to advance democracy and human rights, and to promote economic and social development", the Norwegian Nobel Committee said.
