UAE-Bahrain-Israel Deal: What’s In It For All Countries?
Agreement May Provide Peace In The Region Due To Open Relations With Each Other
The United States President Donald Trump, along with Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu, conducted a meeting with the foreign ministers of Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates at the White House for finalization and implementation of the normalization agreement between the three countries, marking the day as a historic occasion for UAE-Bahrain-Israel deal. President Trump stated that signing this contract of the Abraham Accords would completely change the track record, claiming this as ‘the dawn of a new Middle East.’
Peace and normalization agreement in the Middle East
President Donald Trump stated that this UAE-Bahrain-Israel deal would serve as a new basis of the foundation for the spread of peace and prosperity across the region, which is something impossible before this day, certainly not in this era when there were escalating tensions between the nation. This new agreement of the UAE-Bahrain-Israel deal will be able to successfully prove to the rest of the world that this region is finally breaking free from all the futile approaches from the earlier time period.
By watching this flourishing deal, other countries would soon also follow through this example to bring peace and tranquility upon their regions.
The Israeli Prime Minister described this UAE-Bahrain-Israel deal as the day with a new dawn of peace along with being a pivot and changing of history. The last time when a ceremonial event like this was taken place was conducted in Washington DC in the year 1994. During that time, the President of the United States was Bill Clinton and held a meeting with Jordanian King Hussian and Israeli Prime Minister of that time, Yitzhak Rabin. The agreement signed between those world leaders at that time formed a pathway for a peace treaty several months later.
The UAE-Bahrain-Israel deal, which has been finalized recently, plays a very important and crucial role in the electoral comeback of Donald Trump as the Presidential elections 2020 will be held within 2 months, and successfully able to declare the UAE-Bahrain-Israel deal and normalization agreement will provide a major boost to his campaign.
United States involvement in the Middle East
For the past several years, Israel has secret relations with other Sunni Muslim countries in the Gulf region, which were mostly due to the mutual de facto association in opposition to Iran. Even though this relationship between the countries is pre-dated to the agreement of Iranian nuclear control by more than 10 years, the Gulf nations have taken advantage of Israel’s high-quality technology as the country was looking to secure its place in the frequently chaotic Middle East.
The main country that has been in covert relations was the United Arab Emirates, which has multiple open examples of the growing attachment between both countries. In the last quarter of 2015, Israel initiated a diplomatic-level operation of the International Renewable Energy Agency located in the city of Abu Dhabi. The representatives of Israel were also invited to the Expo 2020 that was scheduled to be held in Dubai, but the event has now been postponed for an indefinite time due to the current situation caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
Likewise, Bahrain has also been reported to have secret ties with Israel that are allegedly dating back to several decades ago. Along with this, Bahrain also has a small and sustained community of Jews in the country, out of which one of its members has also served as the country’s foreign ambassador for five years in the United States from the year 2008 to 2013. Bahrain has also hosted the presentation of the financially viable portion of the White House’s plan for the peace plan to be implemented in the Middle East as a part of the UAE-Bahrain-Israel deal.
This has given clear signals that Bahrain will be willing to engage with the United States and Israel in the future, during a crucial time when no positive progression is being observed in the conflict between Palestine and Israel.
