First Signed Agreement Between Israel And Arab

By eliminating the prospect of annexation, at least for now, it effectively eliminates a huge potential bone of contention between Israel and the West, not only the Europeans, but also the United States. So this is one of those agreements that, at first glance, may not seem as significant as some of the others we have talked about. In a surprise announcement at the White House after a three-way conversation with Israeli and Emirati leaders, Trump said the deal would lead to greater cooperation in the areas of investment, tourism, security, technology, energy and other areas, while the two countries allow scheduled direct passenger flights for the first time. open messages and commercial ambassadors. The declaration marked the first normalization of relations between an Arab country and Israel since Egypt in 1979 and Jordan in 1994. Abraham`s initial agreements were signed on September 15, 2020, by UAE Foreign Minister Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Bahraini Minister Abdullatif bin Rashid Al Zayani and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on the south lawn of the White House in Washington, D.C.[3] Trump said he agreed with the sale of military aircraft to the UAE. Pelosi also welcomed the deals, but said he wanted to know the details, including what the Trump administration has said in the United Arab Emirates about the purchase of U.S.-era F-35 aircraft and that Israel agrees to freeze annexation efforts in parts of the West Bank. Thanks to the deal Trump negotiated in August, the UAE has become only the third Arab nation and the first Gulf state to normalize relations with Israel. “This formalizes this, but it should not be exaggerated to resolve a fundamental conflict for Israel with its neighbors,” he added. During decades of Israel`s conflict with the Palestinians, he said, “this agreement remains intact.” In September 1995, Rabin, Arafat and Peres signed a peace agreement providing for the extension of Palestinian autonomy in the West Bank and democratic elections to appoint the leadership of the Palestinian Authority. Just over a month later, on November 4, 1995, Rabin was assassinated by a Jewish extremist at a peace rally in Tel Aviv.
