As he has said many times in recent days, Mr. Trump has predicted that the next step would be to reach a quick deal with Iran to reduce its nuclear deal if re-elected, when there was no sign that such a reconciliation was really imminent. « If I win the election, » he says, « I will have an agreement with Iran within 30 days. » Malaysia stated that the agreement was a sovereign right of the United Arab Emirates, but that it would continue to support Israel`s withdrawal from the Palestinian territories. [128] The Philippine Ministry of Foreign Affairs issued a statement in which it welcomed the agreement and hoped it would contribute to peace and security in the Middle East. [129] But the agreement triggered an immediate counter-reaction in the region of opposing parts of the ideological spectrum. At least some Israeli settlers and their political allies were disappointed that Mr. Netanyahu abandoned his plan to claim west Bank sovereignty, while the Palestinians felt abandoned by an Arab nation that, even without the threat of annexation, locked them in an unsustainable status quo. Luxembourg Foreign Minister Jean Asselborn, however, questioned the fact that the agreement would bring stability to the region, said that without a two-state solution, there would be no stability, and said that the United Arab Emirates had abandoned the Palestinians with the agreement. [122] The State Department then issued a statement on its part in which it stated that it was not critical of the peace agreement, but stressed that it was important for Arab states, especially the Gulf States, to support a Palestinian state in accordance with the two-state solution. [123] Recognizing the importance of a supportive legal framework for the movement of people and goods and the promotion of an ongoing business-friendly environment, the parties strive to provide each other with the greatest possible legal cooperation, in accordance with their national legislation, including mutual legal assistance in civil and commercial matters. After failed Israeli elections, a new emergency unity agreement was reached on 20 April between the two alliances led by Netanyahu and Gantz, the « Likud bloc » and the « blue-white bloc ».

[86] The agreement contains clauses concerning the draft annex of the West Bank: Ismail Haniyeh, the leader of Hamas, called Mahmoud Abbas, President of the Palestinian Authority, and declared that the agreement was « not binding on the Palestinian people ». Fawzi Barhoum, a Hamas spokesman, called it « dangerous and synonymous with a free reward for the Israeli occupation for its crimes and violations at the expense of the Palestinian people. » The normalization agreement between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, officially the Abraham Peace Agreement: Peace Treaty, Diplomatic Relations and Complete Normalization between the United Arab Emirates and the State of Israel[1], was initially agreed in a joint declaration of the United States, Israel and the United Arab Emirates (United Arab Emirates) on August 13, 2020, officially called the Abraham Agreement. [2] The United Arab Emirates was the third Arab country after Egypt in 1979 and Jordan in 1994 to agree to formally normalize relations with Israel[3][5][5], as well as the first Country in the Persian Gulf to do so. [6] [7] At the same time, Israel has agreed to suspend plans to annex parts of the West Bank. [6] [8] The agreement has normalized informal but robust external relations between the two countries for a long time. [9] [10] The agreement was signed at the White House on September 15, 2020. [11] It was unanimously approved by the Israeli cabinet on 12 October[12] and ratified by the Knesset on 15 October. [13] The United Arab Emirates Parliament and Cabinet ratified the agreement on 19 October.
