Arab-Israeli Peace

Peace between Israel and Egypt, and Israel and Jordan, was achieved in 1979 and 1994 respectively. Israel remains officially at a state of war with both Syria and Lebanon. The Arab Peace Initiative, proposed by Saudi Arabia in 2002 and endorsed by the Arab League, promises full peace and normalized relations between all Arab countries and Israel in exchange for a peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians.
