On 18 May 1981, the President of the United Nations Security Council announced that the United Nations would not be able to provide an observation force because of the threat of a veto by the Soviet Union. Following the impasse, Egypt, Israel and the United States began negotiations to establish a peace organization outside the framework of the United Nations. On 3 August 1981, the Protocol on the Peace Treaty establishing the Multinational Force and Observers (MFO) was signed.  The observer force monitors both parties to ensure compliance with the contract. The agreements were another interim agreement or a new stage, but negotiations resulting from the agreements have slowed down for several reasons. These included the inability to involve Jordanians in the talks; The colonial controversy; indecision of future discussions on autonomy; domestic opposition, carried by both Begin and Sadat and, in Sadat`s case, by the ostracism and anger of the Arab world; the emergence of a cold peace between Egypt and Israel; Changes in foreign policy priorities, including the discontinuity of staff engaged in maintaining the negotiation process.  Carter visited the heads of state he should rely on to enable a peace agreement. By the end of his first year in office, he had already met with Anwar El Sadat of Egypt, King Hussein of Jordan, Hafez al-Assad of Syria and Yitzhak Rabin of Israel. Despite his support for the Sadat peace initiative, King Hussein refused to participate in the peace talks; Bégin offered little to Jordan, and Hussein also feared that he would isolate Jordan from the Arab world and provoke Syria and the PLO if he participated in the peace talks.  Hafez al-Assad, who was not interested in peace negotiations with Israel, refused to come to the United States and only agreed to meet Carter in Geneva. Yet peace is often referred to as a “cold peace” and many in Egypt are skeptical of its effectiveness.   The Arab-Israeli conflict has kept relations cold.  According to CNSNews.com, in 2008, the Egyptian army conducted simulated military exercises against an “enemy” Israel.
 [Best Source Required] In November 1977, the Egyptian head of state went to Jerusalem for peace talks, becoming the first Arab head of state to visit the Jewish nation. The situation was particularly difficult on the tenth day of stalled negotiations. The issues of the withdrawal of Israeli settlements from Sinai and the status of the West Bank have created an apparent stalemate. In response, Carter had the choice to save the agreement by admitting the West Bank issue, while defending Sadat`s less controversial position on the withdrawal of all Sinai settlements. Or he could have refused to continue the talks, pointed out the reasons for their failure, and allowed Begin to bear the primary responsibility. The agreement also led the United States to commit to multi-billion dollar annual subsidies to the Israeli and Egyptian governments, subsidies that continue to this day and are provided as a mixture of subsidies and assistance measures for the purchase of U.S. equipment. From 1979 (the year of the peace agreement) to 1997, Egypt received $1.3 billion a year in military aid, which helped modernize the Egyptian army.  (This goes beyond economic, humanitarian and other aid, which amounts to more than $25 billion). Egypt, delivered to the east until 1979, received American weapons such as the M1A1 Abrams Tank, the artillery ship APACHE AH-64 and the F-16 fighter aircraft.
By comparison, since 1985, Israel has received $3 billion in military grants and aid per year.  The preamble to the “Middle East Peace Framework” begins with the basis for a peaceful settlement of the Arab-Israeli conflict: Egypt was the first Arab state to sign a peace agreement with Israel, with which it and other Arab nations had been at war since the creation of the Jewish nation in 1948.
