Israel and the United Arab Emirates have agreed to normalise relations, US President Donald Trump has announced.
A joint statement by Mr Trump, Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu and Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed said they hoped the "historic breakthrough will advance peace in the Middle East".
Credit where credit is due. If the Trump administration was involved in this, then props to them.
The UAE becomes the first Persian Gulf state to normalize relations with Israel (and being the big financial center that they are, I think it was just a matter of time). Now the question is whether additional Persian Gulf states (like Oman, Qatar, or Bahrain) will follow UAE's lead. I think Saudi Arabia will not agree to anything until a true final resolution is achieved between Israel and Palestine.
