In a speech to the Egyptian parliament in February 1971, President Sadat said that he was willing to sign an interim agreement with Israel, provided that the latter withdraw from the Suez Canal, enable the Egyptians to open the Canal to traffic, and allow an Egyptian police force to deploy along the East Bank. In answer to the questions of the UN envoy to the region, Sadat said that in return for a complete withdrawal from the Sinai, Egypt would be willing to sign a fully-fledged peace agreement with Israel. The State of Israel, led by Prime Minister Golda Meir, refused both offers, and only after the Yom Kippur War and more than 3,000 dead Israeli soldiers did Israel accept the proposals – at worse terms.
