Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) have signed a historic peace agreement to improve relations between Israel and the UAE. This information was given by US President Donald Trump through Twitter.
In a joint statement, US President Trump, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and UAE Crown Prince Mohammed al-Nahyan said the historic breakthrough would boost peace in the Middle East.
According to the agreement, Israel will postpone its plan to merge a large part of the West Bank.
Until now, Israel has had no diplomatic relations with the Gulf Arab states. However, Israel has diplomatic relations with Jordan and Egypt, two Arab states separate from the Gulf.
US President George W. Trump has tweeted that there is a peace deal between Israel and the UAE, with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu calling it a “historic day” in Hebrew.
The UAE’s ambassador to the United States, Yusuf al-Otaiba, also called the agreement a victory for diplomacy and geography. “This is an important step in Arab-Israeli relations, which will reduce tensions and build new energy for positive change,” he said.
This is only the third Israeli-Arab peace agreement since Israel became independent in 1948. Earlier, agreements were signed with East Egypt in 1979 and with Jordan in 1994.
In the coming days, representatives of Israel and the UAE will hold talks and sign bilateral agreements on investment, tourism, direct flights, security, telecommunications, technology, energy, health, culture, environment and the establishment of mutual embassies.
According to the joint statement, the two countries will also work with the United States to set a strategic agenda for the Middle East. The leaders said, “We have the same approach to the risks and opportunities in this area.” At the same time, we express our shared commitment to enhance stability through diplomatic relations, economic integration and security.
