On August 13, 2020, Anwar Gargash, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the United Arab Emirates, announced the UAE`s agreement for the normalization of relations with Israel and said that his country wanted to address the threats facing the two-state solution, including the annexation of palestinian territories, and called on Palestinians and Israelis to return to the negotiating table. He hinted that he did not think there would be an embassy in Jerusalem until there was a final agreement between the Palestinians and the Israelis.  According to US President Donald Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, “Israel and the UAE will completely normalize diplomatic relations. They will exchange messages and ambassadors and engage in large-scale cooperation in a wide range of areas such as tourism, education, health, trade and security.  Nabil Abu Rudeineh [ar], a senior adviser to President Mahmoud Abbas, read an official statement in which the Palestinian leadership rejected the agreement and called it a betrayal of Jerusalem, the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Palestinians.  The Palestinian Authority (NPC) recalled its ambassador from Abu Dhabi.   Palestinian leaders also said that Hamas leader called Ismail Haniyeh Abbas and rejected the deal, which Reuters called a “rare demonstration of unity.”  This is the text of Israel`s agreement with the United Arab Emirates: inside the region, Bahrain, Egypt, Jordan, and Oman have publicly welcomed the Abraham Agreement. Saudi Arabia has remained silent, although there is considerable speculation among analysts that this non-reaction is a sign that Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman supports the deal, but that it is limited because his father, the king, opposes normalization with Israel. Iran, Qatar and Turkey have criticized the deal, with the latter threatening to withdraw their ambassadors from Abu Dhabi. Civil society organizations throughout the region remain firm in their opposition to the normalization of relations with Israel. These include Gulf groups that have explicitly opposed the Israeli-Emirati agreement. .
