Today at the White House, President Donald Trump, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel, Foreign Minister Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan of the United Arab Emirates, and Foreign Minister Dr. Abdullatif bin Rashid Al-Zayan of Bahrain signed the Abraham Accords.

The Accords create full diplomatic relations between the UAE and Israel, as well as Bahrain and Israel.

"President Trump’s leadership and strong alliance with Israel has made it clear that peace in the Middle East will only be possible when countries recognize Israel and its right to exist,” said Congressman John Moolenaar. “Today’s historic agreements between Israel, the United Arab Emirates, and Bahrain are the fruit of successful diplomacy led by President Trump and his administration."
