What Does the Uae Israel Agreement Mean

Скоро кейс

Thursday`s announcement said Israel and the United Arab Emirates had agreed on a «full normalization of relations» rather than a formal peace treaty. According to the joint statement of the United States, Israel and the United Arab Emirates, the Israeli and Emirati delegations will meet in the coming weeks «to sign bilateral agreements on investment, tourism, direct flights, security, telecommunications, technology, energy, health care, culture, environment, establishment of mutual embassies and other areas of mutual interest.» The timing of this process is not yet clear, as UAE officials say talks will «begin» in the coming weeks to implement normalization. The Trump administration has trumpeted the economic and security benefits of the deal and hopes the expected deals will be a step toward further normalization and regional peace. The Abraham Accords come after months of debate over the Israeli government`s plans to annex parts of the West Bank, fearing that such a move could one day prevent a mutually agreed two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The January 2020 Trump administration, «Vision from Peace to Prosperity to Improve the Lives of the Palestinian and Israeli Peoples,» describes areas of the West Bank to be ceded to Israel, and initially the administration seemed willing to allow Israel to unilaterally annex these territories without entering into negotiations with the Palestinian Authority (PA) or making concessions in return. The August 13 Israeli-Emirati announcement indicates that Israel will suspend such annexation — the Emiratis are motivating Israel to refrain from a decision that could affect the prospect of a two-state solution — but details about the timing of the agreement, the definition of annexation or the next steps and diplomatic goals remain undefined. Prime Minister Netanyahu has already announced that the annexation has simply been «postponed» and has reaffirmed his intention to keep the promise to «apply Israeli sovereignty in parts of the West Bank.» He is simply suggesting that it would be nice if that happened. And in that sense, this meeting is breaking down. And Netanyahu and his wife say goodbye. The door closes.

And then we all sit down again to digest what just happened. Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the de facto ruler of the United Arab Emirates, said his price for the deal was Israel`s approval to stop the annexation of large parts of the West Bank. As he has done repeatedly in recent days, Mr. Trump has predicted that he will then reach a quick deal with Iran to contain his nuclear deal if re-elected, though there is no sign that such a reconciliation is really imminent. «If I win the elections,» he said, «I will have a deal with Iran within 30 days.» The agreement is the result of lengthy discussions between Israel, the United Arab Emirates and the United States, which have recently accelerated. The deal was sealed during a phone call between US President Donald Trump, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi. On September 1, Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei accused the UAE of betraying the Islamic world, Arab countries and Palestine. Khamenei said normalization will only be temporary, but the UAE will forever have to endure the shame of the deal. He accused them of working alongside Israel and Kushner against the interests of the Muslim world, hoping that the country will soon regret what it has done. [79] But now Israel is cementing new public relations with Arab states, while Palestinians are still languishing under occupation in East Jerusalem and the West Bank and in an open prison in Gaza.

Jared Kushner, senior adviser to the PRESIDENT of the United States, condemned Kuwait`s position. However, his conviction was circulated online as positive, according to Al Jazeera. [53] However, the Government of Kuwait itself has remained silent on the agreement. On 18 August, 37 Kuwaiti MPs called on them to condemn the agreement. [54] The Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Qabas had reported two days earlier, citing unnamed government sources, that the Kuwaiti government`s position toward Israel remained unchanged. [55] Mark, I know you spoke to this ambassador of the United Arab Emirates. They had dinner with him and asked his permission to tell us this story, for which we are grateful. I wonder what else he told you about this agreement.

Ordinary Palestinians have turned to social media to protest the deal, and some have also insulted the UAE. Meanwhile, Abbas Zaki, a member of Fatah`s Central Committee, called the agreement a violation of the Arab consensus on how to deal with the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. He accused the UAE of betraying Arabs and Palestinians before urging the ANP to step down its UAE ambassador, and also called on the Arab League to repeal the 2002 Arab Peace Initiative. [68] Negotiations were conducted closely at the White House, with only a limited number of officials aware of this[…].
