The Abraham Accords deal between the United Arab Emirates and Israel is a “qualitative step” towards achieving peace in the region, the UAE’s Minister of State Reem al-Hashimi said on Thursday.
The US-brokered deal – signed at the White House in Washington in September– is a different approach to dealing with the Arab-Israeli crisis since it prioritizes a culture of dialogue and tolerance, Emirates News Agency (WAM) quoted al-Hashimi as saying.
The Palestinian cause is still of great importance for all Arabs, she said.
Her comments came during a virtual conference titled “The Abrahamic Peace Agreement – Strengthening Cooperation Bonds” that aims to identify the role of the deal in building ties and its strategic impact on the development of Emirati-Israeli relations, WAM reported.
The conference was also aimed at exploring the impact the Abraham Accord will have on the regional level and between Muslims and Jews.
Al-Hashimi stressed the importance of taking advantage of the opportunities the agreements offers the UAE and Israel in various sectors, including: the economy, scientific research, and tourism.
