The Zionist entity and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) will sign a US-brokered agreement normalizing their relations in Washington on September 15, White House officials said Tuesday.
According to senior officials, the signing ceremony will be held under the auspices of US President Donald Trump and will be attended by an Israeli delegation led by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and an Emirati delegation led by Foreign Minister Abdullah bin Zayed.
The sources further stipulated that “all precautionary measures will be taken in order to insure the safety of all delegation members in light of the coronavirus pandemic,” Israeli media reported.
After the news broke, Netanyahu said he is “proud to leave next week for Washington, at the invitation of President Trump, and participate in the historic ceremony in the White House to establish peace between Israel and the United Arab Emirates.”
The deal is the first such agreement between the Zionist entity and a Gulf nation. It is the third one with an Arab state, after Egypt and Jordan.
