U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has announced new normalization agreements that Arab countries will sign with Israel, without mentioning which countries they are.
Pompeo said in an interview with Al-Arabia, which released excerpts from Sunday, that “there are Arab countries that will join the peace agreements with Israel.”
Israel signed an agreement on establishing relations with the UAE and a statement of “support for peace” with Bahrain in Washington on September 15, under the auspices of outgoing President Donald Trump.
Trump called on Saudi Arabia to follow the example of its two Gulf neighbors, as Sudan announced the normalization of relations with Israel and “the end of a state of hostility between them.”
That comes when Pompeo finishes his tour of Saudi Arabia today, Sunday, where he is scheduled to meet with Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.
The US Secretary of State visited Paris, Istanbul, Georgia, Israel, the Emirates and Qatar during the tour.
