U.S. President Donald Trump said on September 10, that it was possible another country could soon join a diplomatic accord between Israel and the United Arab Emirates. Reuter reported this.

According to the agency, Israel and the UAE agreed last month to normalize relations in a deal that Trump helped orchestrate.

“Next week at the White House we’ll be having a signing between the UAE and Israel, and we could have another country added into that. And I will tell you that countries are lining up that want to go into it,” Trump told a White House news conference.

Trump, who is seeking re-election on Nov. 3, did not disclose the name of the country that might be the next to join, but predicted that Saudi Arabia would eventually do so.

“You’ll be hearing other countries coming in over a relatively short period of time. And you could have peace in the Middle East,” he said.

“I think what ultimately will happen is you’re going to have quite a few countries come in. The big ones are going to be coming in. I spoke to the king of Saudi Arabia, so we’re talking. We just started the dialogue. And you’ll have them come in,” he said.

Earlier, on August 13, with Trump's mediation, Israel and the UAE agreed on the normalization of relations.

Under the agreement, the Gulf state agreed to normal relations with Israel, while Israel promised to suspend plans to annex the West Bank of Jordan River.
