The peace agreement was signed to double the number of Arab states that enjoy normal relations with Israel in the presence of more than 700 people, including leading US senators and representatives at the South Lawn of the White House. It’s a historic moment!
In one month, Trump’s administration signed two peace deals between UAE and Israel, an extraordinary triumph of diplomacy. Abraham Accord is the road to lasting peace and would lead to an enduring two-state solution for the Palestinian people.
Meanwhile, the other side of the world saw another happy news in the world of politics!
