CAIRO – 13 August 2020: President Abdel Fattah El Sisi praised the newly-announced agreement of normalization between the United Arab of Emirates and Israel under the US brokerage.

“I followed with great interest and appreciation the tripartite joint statement between the United States of America, the […] United Arab Emirates and Israel regarding the agreement to stop Israel's annexation of the Palestinian territories,” said President Abdel Fattah El Sisi on his official Twitter on Thursday.

He praised this move as it would “bring peace to the Middle East,” Saying “I value the efforts that were exerted by those who in charge of this agreement in order to achieve prosperity and stability for our region.”

Brokered by the United States of America, both the United Arab of Emirates and Israel reached an agreement of normalization in return for putting an end to the Israeli settlements in the Palestinian West Bank, to be the first Gulf State country that normalizes relations with Israel.

The announcement of the agreement came during a phone call between Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, US President Donald Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Thursday.

“This historic diplomatic breakthrough will advance peace in the Middle East region and is a testament to the bold diplomacy and vision of the three leaders and the courage of the United Arab Emirates and Israel to chart a new path that will unlock the great potential in the region. All three countries face many common challenges and will mutually benefit from today’s historic achievement,” a joint statement read.

The agreement of normalization includes having “bilateral agreements regarding investment, tourism, direct flights, security, telecommunications, technology, energy, healthcare, culture, the environment, the establishment of reciprocal embassies, and other areas of mutual benefit,” the statement added, noting that delegations of three countries would met next weeks to sign the agreement.

“Opening direct ties between two of the Middle East's most dynamic societies and advanced economies will transform the region by spurring economic growth, enhancing technological innovation, and forging closer people-to-people relations,” the statement continued.

Regional peace, not while Iran is around, but increased prosperity, yes. The major change, Arabs aren't basing their actions on palestian values. The region can prosper without the tension palestinians bring.

Please note the Egypt today may have written this, but the actual agreement states “suspend” expansion, not end it.
