U.S. President Donald J. Trump on Thursday announced a “diplomatic breakthrough” and peace was reached between the United Arab Emirates and Israel.

In 2020, UAE joins Jordan, in 1994, and Egypt, in 1979, crossing the line of the Arab League boycott of the Jewish state in place since 1973.

The President said the action would be known as the “Abraham Accord,” named for the “father of all three great faiths.”

“We are already discussing this with other nations,” he said. “So, you will probably see others of these.”

Son-in-law Jared Kushner was praised by POTUS for his efforts in securing the agreement.

“The president, like with all things, urged us to take an untraditional approach,” Kushner said. “You can’t solve problems that have gone unsolved the way people have done before you and failed.”

The president “tries to unite people focusing on common interest as opposed to common grievances,” he said. “We were able to achieve results others could not achieve. This will advance the region and advance the world.”

The deal calls for bilateral trade, research, commerce and travel agreements between the two countries, each with GDP of around $400 billion.

The trade-off for Dubai’s Crown Prince Shiekh Mohammed Bin Zayed in the deal was for Israel Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu to “suspend declaring sovereignty” over land claimed by the Arab League for a Palestinian state in the West Bank.

Refocusing on alliances across the Middle East rather than the Palestinian issue, the statement added all three countries “are confident that additional diplomatic breakthroughs with other nations are possible.”
