The signing ceremony came about Tuesday on the White Home’s South Garden, the place Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu inked the agreements—dubbed the “Abraham Accords”—together with Emirati International Minister Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan and Bahraini Minister for International Affairs Abdullatif Al Zayani.

Immediately’s signing units historical past on a brand new course and there might be different international locations very very quickly that can comply with these nice leaders.”
The UAE, which beforehand had covert relations with Israel, confirmed the deal again in August, shortly earlier than Kushner took the first-ever direct business flight between Israel and the UAE.
