On September 4

On this day in ...
... 1975, in Geneva, Switzerland, was signed the Interim Agreement between Israel and Egypt, by which the 2 countries agreed, in Article I:
'The conflict between them and in the Middle East shall not be resolved by military force but by peaceful means.'
They also agreed to troop pullbacks and to the establishment of a U.N. buffer zone in the then-contested Sinai. (map credit)
