Diplomatic relations will be normalized between the two nations.
There has been a big step towards peace in the Middle East.
U.S. President Donald Trump has announced a peace agreement between Israel and the United Arab Emirates.
The move will normalize relations, a big move considering many nations in the Middle East had previously denied that Israel even existed as a country.
The move follows a strengthening of relations between Israel and Saudi Arabia, and will serve to further isolate Iran.
Here’s a joint statement on the agreement:

You can watch Trump announce the deal below:
This is a great moment, as it raises the prospects of peace in the Middle East, and makes it even more clear that Iran’s repeated threats against Israel will only further isolate the Iranian regime.
This is also another example of how Trump has been more peace-focused than most previous administrations, something that is rarely mentioned:
“Objectively speaking, Trump has been one of the least war-like Presidents in US history (rhetoric aside). It’s ironic how little that gets mentioned, and how many of the same people who consider themselves ‘peaceful’ are advocating for more wars.”
