US President Donald Trump said that Iran wants to conclude an agreement with us, “but I told them to wait until after the presidential elections.”
Trump indicated that he is preparing a big deal with Iran, according to which Iran will become the last “super-rich.”
He stressed that “he held talks with Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz and his Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, and that they are open to peace and will join it.”
On the Bahrain and UAE agreements with Israel, Trump confirmed in statements following his meeting with Emirati Foreign Minister Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, that 5 or 6 other countries may join similar agreements with Israel.
He added, “We have at least five or six countries that will join us very soon. We have already started consulting with them,” without naming these countries.
And he continued, “We will see multiple countries joining and wonderful things will happen, and then we will see real peace.”
He said, “I think the Palestinians see what happens. I think we will see the Palestinians compliant at some point in peace, without bloodshed.”
On Tuesday, the UAE officially signed a “peace treaty” with Israel, which also signed an agreement “declaring support for peace with Bahrain,” at the White House in the presence of US President Donald Trump.
On the Emirati side, Foreign Minister Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan signed the agreement, while the Israeli side represented Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
Bahrain’s Foreign Minister, Abdul Latif Al-Zayani, also signed the “Declaration in Support of Peace with Israel”, days after Manama confirmed that it had reached an agreement with Tel Aviv.
The event, which took place in the South Lawn of the White House, witnessed the attendance of about 700 guests from around the world.
Trump said, in his speech to a large number of officials in the White House: “We are here to change the course of history … We are taking a historic step thanks to these three countries, in order to promote peace and prosperity.”
He explained, “Israel, the UAE and Bahrain will exchange embassies and cooperate closely together and coordinate their efforts in many sectors from tourism, trade, health care and security.”
He pointed out that this step “will open the door for Muslims from around the world to visit Al-Aqsa Mosque and Israel.”
For his part, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that peace “will expand to include other Arab countries, so that it will then be possible to end the Arab-Israeli conflict forever.”
He also noted that “the great economic benefits of our partnership can be felt throughout the region and will reach all our citizens.”
As for the UAE Foreign Minister, Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, he stressed that “this peace represents a new idea that will create a better path and change the face of the Middle East.”
He also stressed that this treaty is “a historic achievement for America, Israel and the UAE.”
