UAE, Bahrain sign Trump-brokered deals to normalise ties with Israel
Washington: In historic development, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates on Tuesday formally accepted Israel as representatives of both Arab countries and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu inked deal in US to bilateral normalise ties.

The deal was signed in a ceremony held at the White House after US President Donald Trump managed to woo the Islamic countries to develop ties with Israeli.

Both Arab countries had agreed to end decades of enmity without resolution of Israel’s dispute with Palestine.

At the event hosted by Trump, the Israeli PM signed agreements with Emirati Foreign Minister Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan and Bahrain's Foreign Minister Abdullatif Al Zayani.

On September 11, Trump had announced that the Kingdom of Bahrain and Israel have agreed to the establishment of full diplomatic relations.

Trump in a tweet said, “Another HISTORIC breakthrough today! Our two GREAT friends Israel and the Kingdom of Bahrain agree to a Peace Deal – the second Arab country to make peace with Israel in 30 days!”
