The 1964 Cairo Agreement

At that time, Syria and the Palestinian Fedayee were calling for the return of the 1948 Arab-Israeli war, but other Arab states (notably Egypt under Gamal Abdel Nasser) did not deemed it the right time to strike. Instead, they agreed on the non-military bellicose tactic of evacuating water from the Jordan River so that Israel could not use it. [3] This deviation was called the Headwater Diversion Plan in 1964. He contradicted the Jordan River`s initially agreed proposals, by both Israel and the Arabs, in the 1955 Unified Johnston Plan, also known as the Jordan Valley Unified Water Plan. This was one of the factors that then triggered the Six-Day War of 1967. 1 Keesing`s Contemporary Archives, 11-28-12 5, 1964 (vol. 14), pp. 20431-20434Google Scholar; and The New York Times, October 12, 1964, pp. 1, 3. During the summit, Nasser developed cordial relations with King Hussein and relations with the leaders of Saudi Arabia, Syria and Morocco were piled up. [12] The summit was to be the first of many: a second summit (1964 summit of the Arab League of Alexandria) was to be held at the end of 1964 in Alexandria, also in Egypt. Following the second summit, a letter was sent to the United Nations outlying the agreed resolutions. A number of important Arab states had not yet gained independence from Britain in 1964 and their leaders therefore did not participate in the conference: the 1964 Arab League summit was the first Arab League summit to take place from 13 to 16 June.

The United Arab Republic (Egypt), Iraq, Lebanon, Syria, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Yemen, Libya, Sudan, Morocco, Tunisia, Kuwait and Algeria, was held on 1 January 1964 in Cairo, Egypt. The summit was triggered directly by Israel`s proposed diversion of water from Lake Tiberias. [4] In response to Syria`s repeated accusations of Egyptian reluctance in a military confrontation with Israel, Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser (1918-1970) pledged to divert two sources of the Jordan River, the Hasbani River and the Banias. [4] Nasser held Arab divisions responsible for what he called a “catastrophic situation.” [5] This was the option chosen in two proposals in the 1964 source management plan. In December 1963, he said that the main resolutions of the summit had been expanded and recorded in a letter to the United Nations eight months later at the 1964 Arab League summit (Alexandria). We, the Heads of State or Government of the Organization for African Unity, meeting at our twenty-ninth ordinary session in Cairo, Egypt, from 28 to 30 June 1993, having considered the situation of conflict on our continent and recalled the Declaration adopted on 11 July 1990 on the political and socio-economic situation in Africa and the fundamental changes in the world, 6. However, we still face the immense twin challenges of economic development and democratic change. .
