October 4, 1977: Memorandum of Conversation between US President Jimmy Carter and Israeli Foreign Minister Moshe Dayan

Common to both the Labor Party and to Begin’s government was a fear that the US would pressure Israel into unwanted concessions and deny Israel its right to sovereign decision-making. It was a concern that Dayan expressed in this October 1977 meeting, and one that he would articulate on several occasions during the Camp David negotiations.
