Israel, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain signed agreements to normalize relations. The ceremony took place at the White House in Washington, TASS reports.
The documents were signed by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Foreign Ministers of the two countries Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan and Abdel Latif al-Zayani. This was attended by US President Donald Trump.
The agreements stipulate that Israel will suspend the extension of its sovereignty to Jewish settlements in the West Bank. Netanyahu expressed confidence that this will help resolve the Arab-Israeli conflict.
Trump, in turn, noted that there are five or six more countries that would also like to sign an agreement with Israel. He did not rule out that this could happen before the US presidential elections in November.
