During this historic day, Melania joined the President in welcoming Netanyahu and his wife to the White House where they had a bilateral meeting prior to the signing event. In the meeting with the Israeli PM in the Oval Office, Trump gave Netanyahu a golden key to the White House as a token of his appreciation.
“This was a special token of affection given by myself and the first lady to the prime minister and the first lady of Israel and it’s a key. We call it a key to the White House. It is a key to our country and to our hearts,” Trump told Netanyahu.
“You have a key to the hearts of the Jewish people,” Netanyahu told the president in response.
Ahead of the ceremony, Trump held separate bilateral meetings in the Oval Office with United Arab Emirates Foreign Minister Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed al-Nahyan and Bahrain’s Foreign Minister Abdullatif Al Zayani.
The agreements, dubbed the “Abraham Accords,” in honor of the three religions represent the first time an Arab country has normalized relations with Israel in more than 25 years. It includes the establishment of the first embassies in one another’s countries and the start of the first commercial flights between Israel and UAE. The last peace treaties with Israel were signed by Egypt in 1979 and Jordan in 1994.
At the signing event, Trump hailed the “dawn of a new Middle East” as he presided over the signing of historic diplomatic deals between Israel, the UAE, and Bahrain.
“We’re here this afternoon to change the course of history. After decades of division and conflict, we mark up the dawn of a new Middle East,” Trump said. “Thanks to the great courage of the leaders of these three countries. We take a major stride toward a future in which people of all faiths and backgrounds live together in peace and prosperity.”
“These agreements prove that the nations of the region are breaking free from the failed approaches of the past. Today signing sets history on a new course. And there will be other countries very very soon, that will follow these great leaders,” Trump added.
Netanyahu called the agreements “a pivot of history” that “heralds a new dawn of peace.” He praised Trump for helping mediate the agreements and encouraged more Arab states to sign the accords.
The two historic deals between Israel and the UAE, and Israel and Bahrain lays the ground for diplomatic, economic, investment, direct flights, security, telecommunications, technology, and more.
