News Desk

The President of the United States (US), Donald Trump has said that he will soon host a White House signing ceremony to formalise the peace deal between Israel and United Arab Emirates (UAE).

According to media reports, at an Oval Office news briefing, Donald Trump said that the peace deal would be known as the Abraham Accord. The US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman said that it was named after the father of all three great faiths, Christian, Muslim and Jewish.

The US President further said, “I look forward to hosting them at the White House very soon to formally sign the agreement. We’ll probably be doing it over the next, I would say, three weeks. And they’ll be coming to Washington.”

It is pertinent to mention here that the former US Presidents Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton held similar ceremonies when Israel normalized relations with Egypt and Jordan.

Trump indicated that other Arab and Muslims states may also sign similar deals with Israel soon, saying, “We have a lot of other interesting things going on with other nations, also having to do with peace agreements. And a lot of big news is coming over the next few weeks, and I’m sure you’ll be very impressed.”

The Prime Minister of Israel, Netanyahu and Crown Prince Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan of Abu Dhabi agreed on Thursday to establish full diplomatic and commercial ties between Israel and UAE.
