Peace Agreements In 2020

The defence minister, who had just finished the meeting with the new head of the Israeli Armed Forces Central Command, Major General Tamir Yadai, before the briefing, said he did not expect there to be a large-scale outbreak of violence by the Palestinians in response to the normalization agreements with the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain. Joe Biden, Trump`s opponent in the 2020 U.S. presidential election, welcomed the agreement because it “builds on the efforts of several governments to promote broader Arab-Israeli openness, including the Obama Biden administration`s efforts to build on the Arab peace initiative.” [42] “This is a very important day for the world. This is a very important day for peace.┬áIn a joint statement by Trump, Netanyahu and Zayed, it was said: “This historic diplomatic breakthrough will promote peace in the Middle East region and is proof of the courageous diplomacy and vision of the three heads of state and government and the courage of the United Arab Emirates and Israel to take a new path that will unlock the great potential of the region.” [24] The United Arab Emirates stated that it would continue to support the Palestinian people and that the agreement would maintain the prospect of a two-state solution between Israel and Palestine. Despite the agreement, Mr. Netanyahu said that Israel`s sovereignty over the Jordan Valley was still on the agenda and was only frozen for now. [24] This is a diplomatic achievement for President Trump and his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, who has largely negotiated the agreements with Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates. Trump says, “We have many nations ready to follow” and make peace with Israel. The agreements with the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain are also of great benefit to Israel. Netanyahu believes in the great strategy of the 1920s, which is that there is an “iron wall” between Jews and Arabs. This means that Israel would benefit in the long run and that the Arab world would benefit from its neighbour`s agreement.

Israel does not want to be isolated in the region. While it understands the long-term benefits, it has also forgotten recent disagreements with the UAE over that country strengthening its military arsenal. Although Ben Ami agreed to normalize relations with Israel before reaching a two-state solution with the Palestinians, Ben Ami says the new peace agreements do not sum up the Arab peace initiative. “And you will have peace in the Middle East, without being stupid and without killing everyone, killing everyone and having blood in all the sand.” India welcomed the agreement and said that the two nations were its allies and that it had always supported peace and prosperity in West Asia. Foreign Minister Subrahmanyam Jaishankar had previously said that UAE Foreign Minister Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan had called him to discuss the agreement. [125] He thanked the King of Bahrain, “for this vision of peace for the region,” based on “understanding and trust” between nations.
