Historic Peace Agreement Israel And United Arab Emirates

Canadian Foreign Minister François-Philippe Champagne hailed the agreement as a historic and positive step towards a peaceful and secure Middle East, adding that Canada welcomed the suspension of annexation plans. [133] Australian Foreign Minister Marise Payne said the agreement was important and that the suspension of the annexation was important. [134] When the UAE began establishing formal relations a year ago, an adviser to Prince Mohammed advised him that the keys be to treat Israelis as equal neighbours and legitimate residents of the Middle East, and thus to emphasize peace, but to make them ask for something on behalf of the Palestinians in return , a formula that ultimately shaped their approach. Ordinary Palestinians turned to social media to protest the deal and some also insulted Vae. Meanwhile, Abbas Zaki, a member of Fatah`s Central Committee, called the agreement a breakdown of the Arab consensus on the management of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. He accused the United Arab Emirates of betraying Arabs and Palestinians before asking the ANP to withdraw its ambassador from the United Arab Emirates and also called on the Arab League to cancel the 2002 Arab peace initiative. [68] Convinced that the development of friendly relations meets the interests of lasting peace in the Middle East and that challenges can only be effectively met through cooperation and not through conflict; In Bahrain, the first Arab Gulf state to speak publicly in favour of the agreement as a step towards peace,[38] fears of government repression prevented activists from voiceing their criticisms. [45] On 26 August, Bahrain`s King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa told US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo that the Gulf State was committed to creating a Palestinian state and implicitly opposed the normalization of relations with Israel. [56] The country subsequently agreed to a normalization of relations with Israel, announced by US President Donald Trump on September 12. [57] Under the agreement, the United Arab Emirates and Israel will cooperate in areas such as education, health, energy, trade and security.

Countries will exchange ambassadors, set up embassies and open direct flights so that pilgrims from the Muslim world can visit sacred places in Israel. It is also important to see what it is not. This is far from the comprehensive peace plan to resolve the Palestinian issue, which President Trump has long advocated.
