In accordance with Article 5 of the Comprehensive Peace, Diplomatic and Normalization Treaty between the United Arab Emirates and the State of Israel, the contracting parties enter into bilateral agreements in areas of mutual interest for which they have agreed to the following provisions. These provisions are attached to the treaty and are included in them. Mr. Trump proposed a peace plan in January that greatly favored Israelis, but he did not make significant progress. It`s true. It was almost an escape hatch when you think about it. He is coming out of a situation that, increasingly, seems not to have a reasonable leak. And in fact, he gives himself a whole new legacy. Netanyahu was about to be remembered as a long-time leader who presided over a period of frustration and lack of progress in peace negotiations with the Palestinians. Instead, he will be remembered as the Israeli Prime Minister, who effectively won the normalization of relations with a major Arab Gulf state, a very different result from what was predicted for him a week ago.

These agreements concluded before this treaty enters into force will enter into force as soon as this treaty enters into force, unless otherwise stated. The principles of cooperation agreed in certain areas are attached to this treaty and are an integral part of this treaty. Well, I would say there are a number of reasons. Start with the fact that their peace efforts in the Middle East, led by the president`s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, have stalled. So it was a way of starting a process that was really paralyzed. A2: There may be more agreements, but I expect them to be like this with countries that were not really at war with Israel. A senior UAE official recently told me that if Israel wanted peace, Israel could only be reached by an agreement with the Palestinians, which clearly would not normalize relations with the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain. Instead, it is a collapse of Arab solidarity on the Palestinian issue, which has existed for three quarters of a century. So, with Otaiba`s agreement, one of the guests slipped to the table and went around the restaurant, introduced himself to the Prime Minister and said, you know, when you finished dinner, why didn`t you and your wife come and say hello to Yousef Otaiba and his guests? And Netanyahu said he would. The Tunisian Assembly of Representatives of the Tunisian People criticized the agreement and said it was in solidarity with the Palestinian cause.

[99] Many people protested outside the United Arab Emirates Embassy in Tunis, people burned Israeli flags and photos of UAE President Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, while supporting the Palestinian cause for independence. [100] Tunisian President Kais Saied then said that Tunisia was not interfering in the agreement and would not oppose, but would support the Palestinians. [101] The leader of the Israeli settler group Yesha Council, David Elhayani, accused Netanyahu of “betraying” some of his loyal supporters and of “deceiving half a million people in the region and hundreds of thousands of hard-working people.” Oded Revivi [he], the mayor of Efrat, a settlement of more than 9,000 people south of Jerusalem, supported Netanyahu, arguing that “the Israeli agreement to defer the application of Israeli law in the Jewish settlements of Judea and Samaria was a fair price to pay,” adding that it could change the way settlements are viewed. [40] Beit El Settlement Mayor Shai Alon and Shomron Regional Council President Yossi Dagan also criticized the agreement. [37] The Turkish Foreign Ministry condemned the agreement and said that the history and people of the Middle East would not forgive and would not forget what the United Arab Emirates did and that it was a violation of the 2002 Arab peace initiative.
