Trump to Announce Peace Deal Between Israel and Bahrain
President Trump is expected to announce another peace deal between Israel and a Muslim majority nation. Peace in the Middle East and between the Jewish and Muslim's is unprecedented. This is something we thought we would never see, but President Trump and his administration has worked relentless for peace.
From The Times of Israel
US President Donald Trump is expected to announce on Friday that Bahrain is joining the United Arab Emirates in normalizing ties with Israel, two officials familiar with the matter told The Times of Israel.
According to the officials, Trump will make the announcement at the White House at 1 p.m. Eastern time. It was not immediately clear whether Bahrain will join the formal signing of the so-called UAE-Israel Abraham Accord at the White House on September 15, or simply issue a statement about its intention to establish relations with Israel.
Trump hinted during a Thursday press conference that another country may join Israel and the UAE for their normalization signing ceremony at the White House.
“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 said during a White House press briefing.
“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
Trump did not elaborate on the country that might be “added into” the signing, and did not specify which countries might attend the Tuesday ceremony, but said that a number of “big ones” are going to “come in,” and mentioned having spoken recently to Saudi Arabia’s King Salman.
“I spoke to the king of Saudi Arabia, so we’re talking. We just started the dialogue,” Trump said.
It wasn’t clear if Trump meant that another country could join Israel and the UAE at the ceremony, or join their normalization agreement.
