And he was quick. Mr. Trump surrounded himself in the Oval Office with a large delegation of aides and officials who received exuberant praise for him, and joked that the agreement should be called the “Donald J. Trump Accord.” At a later briefing, White House National Security Adviser Robert C. O`Brien even announced that the president would win the Nobel Peace Prize. On 17 August, Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu said that Israel was working to launch direct flights to the United Arab Emirates using Saudi airspace. [140] Netanyahu`s office and other officials later denied reports of authorization to sell F-35 fighter jets to the United States after the agreement. [141] Emirati Foreign Minister Anwar Gargash said in an interview with the Atlantic Council that the peace agreement must remove all obstacles to the acquisition of the jets, while any sale would take years to negotiate and deliver, and the UAE had not reapplyed after the agreement.

Of course, the historic peace agreement reached in 1979 with Egypt remains an unassailable reference to ending the Arab-Israeli wars by removing the Arab world`s most populous and powerful nation from the conflict. Without this decisive change, no further agreement would have been possible between Israel and its Arab neighbours. But this peace – and its 1994 successor with Jordan – remains a cold peace, limited to strong security coordination and a series of economic agreements. Depending on the survival of regimes of dubious longevity, such peace is constantly vulnerable to regional and internal vicissitudes. Convinced that the development of friendly relations is in line with the interests of lasting peace in the Middle East and that challenges can only be effectively resolved through cooperation and not through conflict; So, with Otaiba`s agreement, one of the guests slipped to the table and went around the restaurant, introduced himself to the Prime Minister and said, you know, when you finished dinner, why didn`t you and your wife come and say hello to Yousef Otaiba and his guests? And Netanyahu said he would.
