Israel-UAE Normalization and Suspension of West Bank Annexation [August 19, 2020]   [open pdf - 625KB]

From the Document:"President Trump issued a joint statement on August 13, 2020, with Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and United Arab Emirates (UAE) Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayid, announcing that Israel and the UAE have agreed to fully normalize their relations, and that Israel is suspending plans to annex parts of the West Bank. In the coming weeks, Israeli and UAE officials are expected to begin talks aimed at reaching bilateral agreement on Coronavirus Disease 2019 research, direct airline flights, establishing reciprocal embassies, and other matters. These agreements could significantly boost both countries' trade and investment in high-tech and other sectors, and have implications for the region and U.S. policy."
