The United Arab Emirates’ Council of Ministers, headed by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, adopted the Israeli peace deal – the Abraham Accords – to normalize ties between the two countries, the UAE Government announced on Monday.
“The Council of Ministers headed by Mohammed bin Rashid adopts a resolution ratifying the Abraham Accords… and orders the initiation of constitutional procedures to issue a federal decree ratifying the agreement.”
The cabinet expressed its confidence that the deal will help pave the way for peace and stability in the region as it strengthens bilateral relations, the government said.
Israel and the UAE had in August announced that they reached a US-brokered deal to normalize ties. Israel’s parliament ratified the UAE deal last week.
The UAE is only the third Arab states to normalize ties with Israel, following Israel’s 1979 peace deal with Egypt and a 1994 pact with Jordan.
