Well, there it is. I guess the Nobel committee in Norway will give Trump and Pompeo the Peace Prize. Since, you know, they gave it to Barack Obama for just showing up.
According to the Washington Examiner:
Israel and the United Arab Emirates agreed to establish diplomatic relations in a “historic diplomatic breakthrough” negotiated alongside the United States.
“This is a remarkable achievement for two of the world’s most forward-leaning, technologically advanced states, and reflects their shared regional vision of an economically integrated region,” Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Thursday. “It also illustrates their commitment to confronting common threats, as small — but strong — nations.”
The deal, a culmination of years of warming ties between Israel and Arab countries wary of threats posed by Iran, brings one of the leading Gulf Arab nations into open recognition of the Jewish state. Most Arab nations have refused to recognize Israel, citing their support for Palestinian territorial claims, but the agreement unveiled Thursday exchanges the new ties for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s promise to “suspend” a plan to annex territory that many observers regard as necessary for a prospective Palestinian state.
