Israel Peace Agreements

The first step is not only to have Israel suspend, but also to put an end to the promised annexation of certain areas of the West Bank, including the Jordan Valley. The message was incoherent: while the Emiratis declared that the peace agreement would “end a new Israeli annexation”, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu insisted that the annexation be simply “on hold” until further coordination with the United States took place. Israeli intentions regarding the future of the annexation remain unclear. “There is no doubt that the idea of normalization with Arab countries is supported by both the left and the right,” said Dahlia Scheindlin, a Tel Aviv pollster. “The right feels they don`t have to make concessions to the Palestinians to get them, and the left likes peace agreements.” An El Al spokesman announced on 28 August that El Al 971, the first commercial flight between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, would operate Tel Aviv`s Ben Gurion Airport to Abu Dhabi. [143] Saudi Arabia authorized the use of its airspace so that the aircraft could fly directly to the United Arab Emirates and landed at Abu Dhabi International Airport. The flight was carried out by a delegation of U.S. and Israeli officials, including Jared Kushner, Robert C. O`Brien and Meir Ben-Shabbat, Israel`s national security adviser. The aircraft had the word “peace” painted in Hebrew, Arabic and English above the cockpit window and received a red carpet. [144] [145] Saudi Arabia and Bahrain then permanently opened their airspace to flights between Israel and the United Arab Emirates. [146] [147] Israel has recently shaken the world by signing contracts with the United Arab Emirates (United Arab Emirates) and Bahrain. Previously, it had concluded agreements with Egypt (1979) and Jordan (1994) in the Arab world, which brought benefits to both sides.

Egypt, the first country to reach a peace agreement with Israel, received regular aid, including $2 billion in budgetary assistance, as well as military assistance. Israel`s treaty with Jordan was similar in content. Western companies in the Middle East have found about two billion new customers (and count). Belgian Foreign Minister Philippe Goffin said he welcomed the agreement as a step towards a peaceful Middle East and added that the suspension of annexation plans should be continued with the two-state solution. [110] Josep Borrell, the Union`s High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, welcomed the agreement as beneficial to both nations and as important for stability in the Middle East. He also said that the suspension of annexation plans was positive and that the European Union hoped for a two-state solution. [111] Norwegian Foreign Minister Ine Marie Eriksen Seride hailed the agreement as a positive development and said Norway welcomed any measures that led to peace in the Middle East. [112] Some commentators welcomed this approach, which was seen as a positive development towards peace for the region in crisis.
