In what’s being claimed as an historic agreement, Israel and the United Arab Emirates have reached a deal to normalise relations.

Donald Trump made the announcement at the White House, saying Israel would now suspend plans to further annex parts of the occupied West Bank.

However Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu appeared to contradict this, saying there had been “no change” to Israel’s plans.

The UAE is the first Arab Gulf state to agree to formal diplomatic ties with Israel.

  1. Let me also say what it is and what it isn’t: It is a great success internationally. It is not the predominant reason to vote for Trump, because first and foremost we need peace in OUR NATION!

  2. Sorry but the Palestinians have refused all peace plans from the very beginning so if you wait for them to make up their minds, nothing will ever happen. I’m glad UAE decided to move forward.
