On the UAE-Israeli Normalization Agreement: “I just got off the phone with the Israeli Ambassador and the Ambassador from the Emirates. This is only the third time we have had a peace negotiation that has come through in the Middle East. The first was with Anwar Sadat in Egypt and then with Jordan. Now we have the very first Arab Gulf State now recognizing the…state of Israel. I can’t tell you how significant that is for a Gulf State in the Arab world to recognize Israel. I commend the President for his leadership. Jared Kushner, who I know was really been behind the scenes making this thing work. This is a game-changer in the Middle East and we hope that other Gulf Arab states will follow UAE’s leadership in the region.”
