Trump announces Bahrain, Israel will normalize relations


Bahrain, along with Israel and the United Arab Emirates, will attend the tripartite signing ceremony at the White House on Tuesday.

Addressing the Oval Office on Friday afternoon, Trump said it was indeed a historic day.

While agreeing to work with the UAE to normalize relations with Israel, Trump called it "an unimaginable regional change."

The president added that the date of the announcement was "amazing" but "it is as interesting as 9/11."

Trump suggested that a return to normalcy between Israel and other Arab countries could somehow persuade the Palestinians to join.

"We think you have to join most of the countries and you put the Palestinians in a very good position. They want to come in. They want to come in because they have all their friends inside," Trump said. Said

However, the agreement further affects the Palestinians' demand to refrain from normalizing relations with Israel before resolving their dispute with the Palestinians.

Like the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain has never competed with Israel.
