Kelly Craft, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, celebrated the announcement and called it a “huge asset” to President Trump and the world, and said diplomatic relations show “how hungry we are in the world” and how Middle Eastern countries understand that they must “strongly oppose a regime that is the state`s primary sponsor of terrorism – Iran.”  The standardization agreement between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, officially the Abraham Agreement: Peace Treaty, Diplomatic Relations and Complete Normalization between the United Arab Emirates and the State of Israel, was initially agreed in a joint declaration by the United States, Israel and the United Arab Emirates (United Arab Emirates) on August 13, 2020, officially known as the Abraham Agreement.  The United Arab Emirates was the third Arab country after Egypt in 1979 and Jordan in 1994 to agree to formally normalize relations with Israel, as well as the first Country in the Persian Gulf to do so.   At the same time, Israel has agreed to suspend plans to annex parts of the West Bank.   The agreement has normalized informal but robust external relations between the two countries for a long time.   The agreement was signed at the White House on September 15, 2020.  It was unanimously approved by the Israeli cabinet on 12 October and ratified by the Knesset on 15 October.  The United Arab Emirates Parliament and Cabinet ratified the agreement on 19 October.
