Rogers Plan (1969)

The Rogers Plan was a term to describe a framework proposed by United States Secretary of State William P. Rogers to achieve an end to belligerency in the Arab-Israeli conflict following the Six-Day War. Originally proposed in a December 9, 1969 speech at an Adult Education conference, the plan was ultimately rejected by all parties involved, including both houses of the United States Congress.

The speech followed the failure of the Jarring Mission to negotiate an implementation plan for UN Security Council Resolution 242 among the principals in the Six-Day War.

The Israeli interpretation of the plan was that it required Israel to withdraw from areas captured during the Six-Day War without any assurances of a lasting peace from Arab states. There was also considerable resistance among Israelis about the status of Jerusalem. As a result, the Israeli government determined that support of the plan would be "irresponsible."[1] Jerusalem and the Old City. ...

Arab states and the Soviet Union rejected the plan on principle, refusing to enter into any bilateral negotiations with Israel.

The Rogers plan created considerable tension between Israel and the United States, both because of the content of the plan, but also because the US made a number of initiatives without consulting Israel first. At one point, ambassador Yitzhak Rabin returned to Israel for consultations, and Israel found it necessary to point out that it fought the Six-Day War without any support from outside.
