Israel and the United Arab Emirates will sign the historical deal on normalizing bilateral relations. The ceremony would take place in the White House on September 15, Reuters wrote with a reference to the official in the U.S. presidential administration.
Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu and UAE Foreign Minister Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed al-Nahyan will lead the two delegations during this visit to Washington.
President Donald Trump himself will be leading the ceremony.
The Emirates agreed to normalize relations with Israel, while Israel promised to delay the annexation of the West Bank of Jordan. The sides finally reached consensus and agreed to sing the document in the White House - after 18 months of negotiations.
"The deal falls short of any grand Middle East peace plan to resolve decades of conflict between Israel and the Palestinians despite Trump’s pledge to do so. The White House hope is that more such deals between Israel and the Gulf states will emerge, prompting the Palestinians to join negotiations", reads the story.
