Netanyahu: 'Many More' Secret Talks with Arab Nations After US-Brokered UAE Agreement

  •  World

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that there are "many more unpublicized meetings with Arab and Muslim leaders to normalize relations with the state of Israel" following its historic peace agreement with the United Arab Emirates brokered by the United States earlier this month, Fox News reports.

The comment comes on the heels of a formal decree by the ruler of the UAE on Saturday ending the country's boycott of Israel, which has opened trade and commerce between the two nations. The decree formally eliminates a 1972 law on the UAE's books since just after the country's formation, which mirrored the widely held stance by Arab nations at the time that recognition of Israel would only come after the Palestinians had an independent state of their own.

Netanyahu said the UAE's decision opens the door for "unbridled trade, tourism, investments and exchanges between the Middle East's two most advanced economies" and thanked the Trump administration for their support in brokering the historic deal.

"We could not seal this historic peace with the Emirates and with others that are in line without the tremendous support of our great and loyal friends from the United States of America," Netanyahu said.
