VaE and Bahrain will be represented at the signing ceremony by their foreign ministers Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan and Abdullatif bin Rashid Al Zayani. Trump will meet with each of them before the ceremony. However, the signing ceremony is still a step behind official ratification under Israeli law, which legal experts say requires the cabinet and Knesset to be printed for official peace treaties. President Trump presided over a ceremony on the Southern Turf, during which Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the foreign ministers of Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates signed a general statement of principle, named by the White House after the biblical father of three monotheistic religions and individual agreements between Israel and the two Arab states. The broadcasts were interrupted to report a sudden rocket launch by Palestinian militants in Gaza when the leaders gave authoritative speeches on peace drillers. President Trump said the agreements to normalize relations marked “the beginning of a new Middle East,” but some analysts said his claims were excessive. The agreements have been widely supported by all parties, but legislators have expressed some concerns. In a statement, House of Representatives spokeswoman Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) cited questions “about the commitment the UAE received from the Trump administration to purchase f-35 aircraft from U.S. industry.” In addition to their historical character, the agreements are also important to sideline the Palestinians. For three years, Palestinian leaders rejected Trump`s peace efforts, saying they had benefited Israel, and they called the two Arab nations traitors to their cause. The details of what exactly is in Abraham`s chords remain sketched and the documents have yet to be published. The White House official said that there would be a common document and that there would then be bilateral agreements between Israel and the two Arab countries. “These agreements are not “peace for peace,” Horowitz said, referring to Netanyahu`s assertion that agreements are a new paradigm in Israel`s peace efforts.
The official declined to reveal whether the agreement would include Israeli obligations in the Palestinian case. The two agreements with the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain, to be signed on Tuesday, mention different areas of planned cooperation between the respective countries, the official said. Before the ceremony, Mr. Netanyahu will meet at the White House with U.S. President Donald Trump, who acted as a mediator for the diplomatic breakthrough, as said by an Israeli official, who briefed reporters accompanying the prime minister to Washington. I call on the Sudan People`s Liberation Movement – North Abdelaziz Al-Hilu to participate fully in the negotiations – and to seize the opportunity offered by the recent signing of the agreement in principle alongside Prime Minister Hamdok in Addis Ababa. “It formalizes this, but it should not be overplayed as a solution to a fundamental conflict for Israel with its neighbors,” he added. Israel`s decades-long conflict with the Palestinians, he said, “is not resolved with this agreement.” The agreements are the first such agreements between Israel and an Arab state since 1994, when the Jewish state established diplomatic relations with Jordan. They are also a further step towards the formation of a de facto alliance between Israel and the Sunni Arab monarchies of the Gulf against their common enemy, Shiite Iran. Pressure on Iran was a central focus of Trump`s foreign policy, and Trump officials worked to build a common regional front against Tehran, in which Saudi Arabia played an important role. “It is also essential that we fully understand the details of the agreements regarding the announced freeze of Israel`s efforts to annex parts of the West Bank,” she said.
We have a vision of peace, security and prosperity in the Middle East and around the world.
