United Arab Emirates Peace Agreement

The Greek Foreign Ministry congratulated the two nations and called it a victory for diplomacy in the hope that it had brought peace to the region. [113] Ukrainian President Wolodymyr Zelensky made a phone call to Netanyahu. [114] Other nations, such as Austria, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Romania and Kosovo, also welcomed the agreement. [115] [116] [117] The Bulgarian Foreign Ministry spoke of an “extraordinary diplomatic breakthrough” that could change the future of the Middle East in the hope that it would bring peace and improve the lives of the people of the Middle East, and congratulated both countries. [118] Polish Foreign Minister Jacek Czaputowicz discussed the agreement with UAE Foreign Minister Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan by telephone and congratulated him and said cooperation was needed to resolve the Middle East`s problems. He also welcomed the suspension of Israeli annexation plans and hoped that the Israeli-Palestinian dialogue would resume. [119] Ordinary Palestinians turned to social media to protest the agreement, and some also insulted the Vae. Meanwhile, Abbas Zaki, a member of Fatah`s Central Committee, called the agreement a breakdown of the Arab consensus on the management of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. He accused the United Arab Emirates of betraying Arabs and Palestinians before asking the ANP to withdraw its ambassador from the United Arab Emirates and also called on the Arab League to cancel the 2002 Arab peace initiative. [68] A6: That is, but it is not clear that the era will be an era of greater peace. In the short term, this could be an era of increased volatility. Less pan-Arab cooperation, combined with the determination of the United States to reduce its footprint in the region, will likely create a different regional dynamic.

It should be noted that other regions have found regional cooperation organisations – such as the European Union, the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, the Organization of American States and the African Union – useful ways to solve the problems. The Arab League is going through a phase of redefinition and rebalancing, and although some of them are long overdue, some can be destabilizing. In Bahrain, the first Arab Gulf state to speak publicly in favour of the agreement as a step towards peace,[38] fears of government repression prevented activists from voiceing their criticisms. [45] On 26 August, Bahrain`s King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa told US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo that the Gulf State was committed to creating a Palestinian state and implicitly opposed the normalization of relations with Israel. [56] The country subsequently agreed to a normalization of relations with Israel, announced by US President Donald Trump on September 12. [57] This is a truly historic moment. Since the signing of the Israeli-Jordanian peace treaty more than 25 years ago, less progress has been made towards peace in the Middle East. The agreement was a major political turnaround for Mr. Netanyahu, who has long insisted on expanding settlements in the occupied West Bank in an effort to annex the territory. Mr. Netanyahu was under political pressure to be flexible, as three new elections gave him only a majority in a coalition government and he was prosecuted in 2021.

In 2019, the Trump administration reversed decades of U.S. policy by declaring that West Bank settlements were not contrary to international law, a decision that threatened the two-state solution, long seen as the key to a lasting peace between Israel and the Palestinians.
