Signing Of Uae Israel Agreement

Despite Israel`s clear promise to end the annexation, Palestinian leaders rejected the agreement and recalled their ambassador from Abu Dhabi. From the point of view of the Palestinians and their supporters, the agreement reflects the bad faith parts of Israel, the United Arab Emirates and the United States, as the Israelis and Emiratis had already normalized their relations before the Abraham Agreement. Ordinary Palestinians turned to social media to protest the deal and some also insulted 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] However, The Palestinian leadership showed no sign that they would reconsider their continued refusal to negotiate with Israel as part of a peace plan released by the Trump White House in January, nor their vision of Tuesday`s agreement. Demonstrations and demonstrations were held in many cities in Pakistan to condemn the agreement between the United Arab Emirates and Israel. [83] In the region, Bahrain, Egypt, Jordan and Oman have publicly welcomed the Abraham Agreement. Saudi Arabia has said nothing, although analysts strongly speculate that this non-reaction is a sign that Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman supports the deal, but that it is limited because his father, the king, opposes normalization with Israel. Iran, Qatar and Turkey have criticized the deal, with the latter threatening to withdraw their ambassador from Abu Dhabi. Civil society organizations across the region remain strongly opposed to normalizing relations with Israel. These include Gulf groups that have been particularly opposed to the Israeli-Emirati agreement. The government of Oman has publicly supported the agreement (which it described as “historic”).

[58] The Grand Mufti of Oman, Ahmed bin Hamad al-Khalili, indirectly criticized the treaty. [59] Ahmed Mulla Talal, spokesman for the Iraqi government, said that Iraq would not interfere in the sovereign affairs of other countries, but that its laws did not allow for the normalization of relations with Israel. [60] It was not mentioned that plans to annex the West Bank had been suspended by Israel, which had been touted by the United Arab Emirates as a great benefit of their agreement. The Israel-UAE text had a substantial annex on the various diplomatic and economic routes, the two states wanted to get closer. The Israel-Bahrain agreement was a much thinner document with little substance than the stated commitment to establish diplomatic relations. Israel and the United Arab Emirates signed four agreements during the Gulf state`s first high-level visit to Tel Aviv since the controversial stage of establishing official relations between the two countries last month. By signing “peace agreements,” the two heads of state and government can claim significant foreign policy victories, even if frustrations were growing in their own countries. In a joint statement by Trump, Netanyahu and Zayed, it was said: “This historic diplomatic breakthrough will promote peace in the Middle East region and is proof of the courageous diplomacy and vision of the three heads of state and government and the courage of the United Arab Emirates and Israel to take a new path that will unlock the great potential of the region.” [24] The United Arab Emirates stated that it would continue to support the Palestinian people and that the agreement would maintain the prospect of a two-state solution between Israel and Palestine.
