White House: UAE and Bahrain set to normalize ties with Israel today

The White House has invited senior Democratic lawmakers to a ceremony in which representatives from the UAE and Bahrain will sign a deal with Israel to normalize relations.

According to the international news agency, the House has invited a great number of democrats to the signing ceremony that will take place on the White House South Lawn on Tuesday. 

US President Donald Trump will host the ceremony today where Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will sign agreements with Emirati Foreign Minister Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed al-Nahyan and Bahrain’s Foreign Minister Abdullatif Al Zayani.

The UAE and Bahrain will become the third and fourth Arab states to step forward to normalize relations with Israel. Before that, Israel had signed peace agreements with Egypt in 1979 and Jordan in 1994.

Earlier, US President Donald Trump announced that Israel and the Gulf state of Bahrain have signed a deal to fully normalize their relations.

“The second Arab country to make peace with Israel in 30 days,” he tweeted.

Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu shared his thoughts that he was “excited” that “another peace agreement” had been reached with another Arab country on Friday.
