Second Rogers Plan (1970)

A plan submitted by US Secretary of State William P. Rogers to representatives from Israel, Jordan, Egypt and the Soviet Union on 19 June 1970. Similarly to Rogers' 1969 plan, its purpose was to reach a ceasefire in the War of Attrition between Egypt and Israel, as well as promoting a comprehensive Arab-Israeli settlement based on UN Security Council Resolution 242 and the principle of Israeli withdrawal from territories occupied in the 1967 Six Day War. A ceasefire ending the war was signed the following August, but another initiative by Rogers failed to prevent the 1973 War.
