The Sinai Interim Agreement, also known as the Sinai II Agreement, was a diplomatic agreement signed by Egypt and Israel on September 4, 1975. The signing ceremony took place in Geneva. At the end of April, Kissinger decided it was time to launch its second shuttle to the Middle East. On May 1, he left for Jerusalem to begin nearly a month of intense negotiations between Israelis and Syrians. Negotiations focused on the Golan Heights town of Quneitra, three kilometers inside the area conquered by Israel during the June 1967 Arab-Israeli war. As Quneitra did not contain Israeli settlements, the Syrians wanted the city to be returned as part of an agreement, as well as the area taken during the October War. After the first week of negotiations, the Syrians and Israeli kissingers had expressed their views on a withdrawal line. In accordance with the decision of the Geneva Conference, the Governments of Israel and Egypt, with the support of the Government of the United States, reached an agreement on the withdrawal and separation of their armed forces. Within five days of the signing of the Israeli-Egyptian agreement, representatives of both sides are meeting in the military working group of the Middle East Peace Conference in Geneva to begin preparing a detailed protocol for the implementation of the agreement. The working group will finalise the minutes within two weeks.
In order to facilitate the preparation of the protocol and the implementation of the agreement and to maintain scrupulous respect for the ceasefire and other elements of the agreement, the two sides agreed on the following principles, which are an integral part of the agreement, as guidelines for the working group. . . .
