Thereafter, the Hittites were extending their frontiers across northern Meso- potamia and Syria. This led to conflict with Egypt, since each was aspiring to control the routes of international commerce.

True peace came only upon the conclusion of a treaty between Ramesses II and Khattouchili III, through which an extreme alliance was finally agreed. The treaty was an implicit recognition by both partners of a territorial status quo . Its conclusion was probably enhanced by the rising of the Assyrians and the infiltra- tion of the Sea Peoples.
