Israeli government approves agreement to normalize relations with UAE

On October 12, the Israeli Cabinet of Ministers unanimously approved an agreement on the normalization of relations between the country and the United Arab Emirates, TASS reports.

We will remind, on September 15 in the White House Israel, the UAE and Bahrain signed an agreement on the normalization of relations. These countries have reached an agreement on the conclusion of peace with the mediation of the United States. Trump called these events a "historic breakthrough."

The agreement was previously submitted to the Israeli government by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Now it must be approved by the country's parliament. The final reading is expected to be held on Thursday.

Netanyahu said at a cabinet meeting that the agreement with the UAE "reflects a radical change in Israel's status in the region," and the Arab countries want to make peace, "because they see Israel's strength." The prime minister added that similar agreements with other Arab and Muslim countries will follow.

We add that in early October, the speaker of the unicameral parliament of Lebanon, Nabih Berri, announced a framework agreement with Israel on the demarcation of the sea and land borders.
