Israel and the UAE have agreed to normalise relations. Israel agreed to suspend plans to annex parts of the West Bank. The historic breakthrough was announced yesterday by the leaders of Israel, the UAE and the USA. They expressed hope that the "historic breakthrough will advance peace in the Middle East". Israel has had diplomatic relations with Egypt and Jordan for decades. Until now, it has had no such relationships with a Gulf Arab state. Israel will "focus its efforts now on expanding ties with other countries in the Arab and Muslim world".

The three leaders behind the Abraham Accord said: "This historic diplomatic breakthrough...is a testament to the bold diplomacy...vision...and courage of the UAE and Israel to chart a new path that will unlock great potential in the region." Mr Netanyahu called it a "historic day". The UAE called the deal a "win for diplomacy and the region" that would lower tensions and create "new energy for positive change". The Palestinian leadership called it a "betrayal" of the Palestinian cause and the equivalent of being "sold out by friends".
