The UN Security Council often imposes ceasefire resolutions on parties in modern conflicts or tries to force them. The armistice is always negotiated between the parties themselves and is therefore generally considered more binding than non-binding UN ceasefire resolutions in modern international law. A ceasefire is a formal agreement of the belligerents to end the fighting. This is not necessarily the end of a war, because it can only represent a cessation of hostilities while trying to negotiate a lasting peace. It is derived from the Latin arma, which means „weapons“ (as in weapons) and stitium, which means „a stop.“  Treaties are often ratified in areas considered neutral in the previous conflict and in delegates from neutral countries who witnessed the signatories. The Korean War is an example of a conflict that was ended by a ceasefire and not a peace agreement with the Korean ceasefire agreement. But this war is never technically over, because there has never been a definitive peace treaty or final settlement.  The Treaty of Versaille is perhaps the most famous peace treaty and is held responsible by many historians for the rise of Nazism in Germany and the outbreak of World War II in 1939. The costly reparations that Germany had to pay to the victors, the fact that Germany had to assume sole responsibility for the beginning of the war and the severe restrictions on German rearmament were all in the Treaty of Versaille and caused great discontent in Germany. The question of whether or not the treaty can be held responsible for the opening of another war is an example of the difficulties associated with peace. But such a conflict did not result from a more criminal settlement with the Ottoman Empire. The earliest recorded peace treaty, although rarely mentioned or memorable, was between the Hehitennic Empire and the Hayasa-Azzi Confederacy, circa 1350 BC. More famously, one of the first recorded peace agreements between the hemetic and Egyptian empires was concluded after the Battle of Kadesh in 1274 BC (see Egyptian-Russian Peace Treaty).
The battle took place in Syria today, the whole Levant was then taking place between the two empires. After an extremely costly four-day battle, in which neither side gained a substantial advantage, both sides claimed victory. The lack of solution led to further conflicts between Egypt and the Hethians, Ramesses II conquering the city of Kadesh and Amurru in its eighth year of rule.  The prospect of another long-running conflict between the two states finally convinced their two leaders, Hatusili-III. Ramesses to end their dispute and sign a peace treaty. Neither side could afford the possibility of a longer conflict, as they were threatened by other enemies: Egypt was placed under the responsibility of defending its long western border with Libya against the invasion of Libyan tribes by building a chain of fortresses, from Mersa Matruh to Rakotis, and the Hethians faced a more powerful threat in the form of the Assyrian empire that had conquered the „Hanigalbat, the mitanni nucleus, between the Tigris and the Euphrates“, which was previously a state of hethit vase.  Therefore, when military force is used, it is called „international armed conflict“ rather than „war.“ The fact that current international law avoids the use of the concept of „war“ also avoids the conclusion of a peace treaty based on the existence of war.  After the end of the war in Iraq in 2003, no peace treaty was signed and only UN Security Council Resolution 1483, adopted on 22 May 2003, established the post-war regime for the stability and security of Iraq.  After five years of war between Kushite Kandake, Amanirenas and Augustus of Rome, a peace treaty was concluded in 21/20 BC.
