Turkey Condemns Bahrain, Israel Accord

Turkey Condemns Bahrain, Israel Accord”

After last month's deal between the United Arab Emirates and Israel, Erdogan warned Turkey could suspend diplomatic relations with the Gulf state in response.

The ceremonies are scheduled to be held on Tuesday in the White House, attended by U.S. President Donald Trump, UAE Foreign Minister Abdullah bin Zayed, and Bahraini Foreign Minister Abdullatif bin Rashid Al Zayani.

FILE - Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announces full diplomatic ties will be established with the United Arab Emirates, during a news conference on August 13, 2020 in Jerusalem.

According to the joint statement of the USA, the Kingdom of Bahrain and Israel, Bahrain has agreed to formalise the deal with Israel at a ceremony to be held on September 15 at the White House.

"The Bahraini-American-Israeli agreement to normalize relations is now part of a bigger package in the region".

They will exchange embassies and ambassadors, begin direct flights between their countries, and launch cooperation initiatives across a broad range of sectors, including health, business, technology, education, security, and agriculture.

"Normalization of states in the region with Israel will not change the essence of this conflict, which is the systemic denial of the Palestinian people's inalienable right to freedom and sovereignty", said Hanan Ashrawi, a senior Palestinian official.

Ebrahim Noonoo, the head of Bahrain's Jewish community, said the agreement would enable Israelis to come to Bahrain to visit its synagogue and cemetery, where family members may be buried.

Bin Alwai told Ashkenazi that Oman "clearly reaffirms its position calling for a comprehensive, just and lasting peace" in the Middle East. He's brought people in the Middle East together.

Later in a conference call with reporters, Kushner said that this deal will bring these countries closer together. It took Israel 72 years to form the first two peace agreements with Jordan and Egypt.

America First is the slogan by US President Trump and the means weapon sales since it is expected all these countries will now be allowed to obtain military equipment from the U.S. This is good for the ailing US economy but also risky if implemented too quickly and with the goal to win a US election.

The UAE said its agreement with Israel took annexation off the table, but Netanyahu has said the pause is temporary and that Israel remains committed to the Trump plan.

For the UAE, though, the step-by-step approach to normalisation offers time to measure regional reactions to the treaty and maintain leverage over Israel and the USA as it seeks advanced American weaponry, including Lockheed Martin Corp's F-35 stealth fighter. It has kept friendly relations with a range of regional actors, including arch-foes the United States and Iran. From my recent travels to the region, there is clear momentum for a new Middle East. I thank King Hamad and Prime Minister Netanyahu for having the courage to change the fate of nations, he said.
