The premature death of President Nasser at the age of fifty-two in September 1970 shocked Egypt in an unprecedented manner. He died just after the closing of a summit of Arab leaders to discuss the clashes between the Jordanian army and the Palestinian resistance. Nasser's death sent shock waves across the Arab world, and signaled the beginning of a new era in contemporary Arab history. The 1967 defeat and Nasser's death in 1970 eventually brought about major political changes in the Arab world. Policy changes on the national and international levels resulted in major shifts on the economic, social, and political levels. In Egypt, international alliances with the Soviet Union and the central emphasis on the role of the Non-Allied Movement was supplanted by the creation of a new alliance with the United States.
