ISMI Featured Docments:

September 11, 1978: Memorandum of Conversation between the US and Egyptian Delegations at Camp David

Like all other US records of conversations from the Camp David negotiations, this conversation too was a summary of what was discussed and raised, and not a verbatim transcript of who said what at the meeting. By comparison, the records of conversation held at the White House between Carter and other heads of state are verbatim transcripts.
