Israel and the United Arab Emirates reached a historic peace deal on Thursday, that may result in a full normalisation of bilateral diplomatic relations.
The deal was agreed between Israel’s Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu and Abu Dhabi’s crown prince, Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, with the US President Donald Trump serving to dealer the deal.
“Together we can bring a wonderful future. It is an incomparably exciting moment,” Netanyahu stated. The Israeli PM referred to as the settlement as a “full, formal peace” with “one of the strongest countries in the world.”
To facilitate relations with Arab and Muslim international locations and to reach the peace deal, the US requested from Netanyahu to “temporarily postpone” plans to annex elements of the occupied West Bank.
Israel agreed to “suspend declaring sovereignty over areas outlined in the President’s Vision for Peace and focus its efforts now on expanding ties with other countries in the Arab and Muslim world,” reads an announcement by the UAE, Israel, and the US.
Trump introduced the settlement on Thursday by a Twitter publish, calling it a “Historic Peace Agreement.”
It is the primary peace treaty between Israel and an Arab nation in 25 years.
HUGE breakthrough at this time! Historic Peace Agreement between our two GREAT buddies, Israel and the United Arab Emirates!
