Aspects of UAE-Saudi Economic Package for Palestinians

UAE at Heart of US Regional Strategy in Persian Gulf

Friday 16 October 2020
Alwaght- Based on repeated claims by US and Israeli officials, the plan to normalize relations with the Zionist regime was supposed to continue rapidly and involve a large majority of the Arab world, however only UAE and Bahrain have normalized relations with Israel.

This can be clearly seen from Trump’s appeal to the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi in order to persuade other Arab countries to normalize relations with the Israeli regime.
