(18 Mar. 1962)
A peace treaty signed in the French spa town of Évian by Pompidou (for France) and Ben‐Bella (for the FLN) which brought peace and independence to Algeria, after a ceasefire had been in operation since 21 February 1962. Subsequent referendums in Algeria and France ratified the agreements with overwhelming majorities, despite threats from colonialist terrorist organizations, and the Organisation de l'Armée Secrète.
