President Trump, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, United Arab Emirates Foreign Minister Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, and Bahraini Foreign Minister Abdullatif bin Rashid Al Zayani on Tuesday signed the Abraham Accords, normalizing diplomatic relations between Israel and the two Arab countries for the first time. Speaking at the White House, Netanyahu said "this day is a pivot of history. It heralds a new dawn of peace." The actual text of the agreements haven't been revealed yet. Trump said he expects more Arab nations to strike similar pacts going forward. However, Palestinians have rejected them, accusing Bahrain and the UAE of betrayal. Many experts doubt there will be any tangible move toward peace in the region, though the deals are considered historic and symbolically noteworthy.
