Israel and UAE announce normalisation of relations with US help

Israel and the United Arab Emirates have reached a “historic” deal that is expected to lead to “full normalization of relations” between the two Middle Eastern nations in an agreement that United States President Donald Trump helped broker.

Under the agreement, Israel on Thursday agreed to suspend applying sovereignty to Palestinian areas of the occupied West Bank that it had been discussing annexing.

The deal was the product of lengthy discussions between Israel, the UAE, and the US that accelerated recently, White House officials told the Reuters news agency.

A joint statement was tweeted out Thursday by Trump, that spelled out some of the issues that had been agreed.
