Israel and UAE to Sign Historic Deal at White House Next Week
Last month, President Trump helped negotiate the Abraham Accord, the historic peace deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates. Senior delegations from the two nations will officially sign it next week at a White House ceremony, according to U.S. officials.
The Associated Press reports that these U.S. officials said that “senior delegations from both countries will likely be led by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Emirati Foreign Minister Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the brother of the UAE crown prince. The officials, who were not authorized to discuss the matter publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity, said the ceremony would either be on the South Lawn, the Rose Garden or inside depending on weather.”
The last month has seen the first direct commercial flight from Tel Aviv to Abu Dhabi, the establishment of telephone links and other commitments. Other countries have followed in the UAE’s footsteps in pursuing peace deals with Israel as well, most recently in the form of the deal between Serbia and Kosovo last week.
These diplomatic achievements by Trump in helping to strengthen Israel and build alliances against Iran, the world’s leading state sponsor of terror and a major global threat, are extremely important to national security and world stability.
