A coalition of Arab states, led by Egypt and Syria, fought in October 1973 in Yom Kippur or in October war against Israel. The conflict eventually led to secret peace talks that culminated in two agreements after 12 days. This photo of March 26, 1979 shows Egyptian President Anwar Sadat, his American counterpart Jimmy Carter and Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin after the signing of the agreements in Washington. Jared Kushner, a senior adviser to the President of the United States, condemned Kuwait`s position. However, according to Al Jazeera, his conviction was widely shared on the Internet as positive. [53] However, the Government of Kuwait itself has remained silent on the agreement. On 18 August, 37 Kuwaiti MPs asked them to condemn the agreement. [54] Two days earlier, the Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Qabas, citing unnamed government sources, had indicated that the Kuwaiti government`s position vis-à-vis Israel was unchanged. [55] The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps has warned the United Arab Emirates that it will have dangerous consequences for the agreement. Iranian President Hassan Rouhani called the agreement a «huge mistake» and warned the United Arab Emirates that Israel was not safe in the Gulf. Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif spoke of a betrayal of Arab and non-Arab countries in the Middle East.

A group of protesters with less than 100 residents gathered in front of the VaE Embassy in Tehran on 15 August, chanting «Death to America» and «Death to Israel». Protesters also burned Israel`s flag. [72] The conservative newspaper Kayhan, whose editor-in-chief is appointed by Iran`s Supreme Leader, warned that the agreement had made the United Arab Emirates a «legitimate and simple objective.» [73] Prime Minister Netanyahu said there was «no change» in his plans to cancel part of the West Bank if approved by the United States, but added that they would be temporarily suspended. [33] Prior to the agreement, the plan to annex the West Bank by 30% had already been frozen, with the majority of Israelis and government coalition partners Benny Gantz rejecting the plan. Hundreds of thousands of Israeli settlers live in the territories, in addition to Palestinians who in practice were under Israeli control. [34] On 13 August 2020, uae Foreign Minister Anwar Gargash announced the UNITED Arab Emirates agreement on normalizing relations with Israel and said his country wanted to address threats to the two-state solution, particularly the annexation of the Palestinian territories, and to ask the Palestinians and Israelis to return to the negotiating table. He suggested that he did not think there would be an embassy in Jerusalem until there was a final agreement between the Palestinians and the Israelis. [30] According to US President Donald Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, «Israel and the United Arab Emirates will completely normalize diplomatic relations. They will exchange embassies and ambassadors and begin working together in all areas such as tourism, education, health, trade and security. [31] «I don`t think anything is set in stone,» said UAE official Omar Ghobash.
