What Letters Accompanied the 1978 Camp David Accords?



General Reference (not clearly pro or con)
The Country Studies/Area Handbook on Israel, published in 1988 by the United States Federal Research Division of the Library of Congress, contained the following:

"The [1978 Camp David] agreements were accompanied by letters. A letter from Begin to Carter promised that the removal of settlers from Sinai would be put to Knesset vote. A letter from Sadat to Carter stated that if the settlers were not withdrawn from Sinai, there would be no peace treaty between Egypt and Israel. It was also understood that to make the agreement more palatable the United States would significantly increase aid to both countries."
