ATLANTA (AP) - The Central Intelligence Agency has declassified 1,400 pages of intelligence related to the Camp David Accords that former President Jimmy Carter negotiated in 1978 with the leaders of Israel and Egpyt.

The documents include political and personality profiles of Egyptian President Anwar Sadat and Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin that Carter read before the 13-day summit at the presidential retreat.

Carter said Wednesday in Atlanta that the documents helped him prepare him to negotiate what became the first treaty between the Jewish state of Israel and one of its Arab neighbors.

There also are transcripts of U.S. National Security Council sessions and summaries of key meetings among U.S. officials, Egyptians and Israelis.

The papers cover the period from January 1977 through March 1979.
