The October 1973 war, provoked partly at least by this Israeli intransigence, was a booster of sorts to Arab morale; but in substantive terms, the UN Security Council Resolution of October 22, 1973 which brought that war to an end, and which also reiterated the call for the implementation of its earlier resolution of 1967, achieved little except to call upon the "parties concerned'' to start negotiations. The Geneva Conference which opened under UN auspices on December 21, 1973 only to adjourn indefinitely soon thereafter was in response to this call. Its only achievement was the "limited disengagement accord" between Israel and Egypt, arrived at on January 18, 1974. But even though the "second phase of the Geneva Conference", which was supposed to follow soon after the limited disengagement accord was implemented, has yet to come about, the bilateral contacts between Israel and Egypt continued, mainly with American encouragement and support.
