    US President Donald Trump said tonight (Wednesday) that he hopes Saudi Arabia will join the normalization agreement between Israel and the United Arab Emirates. Asked if he expected this, the president replied, "I do." Referring further to the agreement, Trump said that the UAE is indeed interested in purchasing F-35s, and that they are willing to pay a lot of money for them.

    At the same time, Trump said the United States would demand that all UN sanctions imposed on Iran in the past and suspended be renewed. He said he had instructed US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to inform the UN Security Council of Washington's desire to renew all sanctions against Iran. He said it was Washington's right to do so.

    Earlier in the day, Saudi Arabia's Foreign Minister Faisal bin Farhan said unilateral measures by Israelis were undermining the peace process. His remarks are Saudi Arabia's first response since the normalization agreement between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, which was announced last week.

    He said that Riyadh remained committed to the Arab peace initiative, which was formulated by it in 2002. It states that normalization with Israel and the Arab world will be only after the establishment of a Palestinian state with its capital, East Jerusalem. Ben Farhan made the remarks during a press conference in Berlin with his German counterpart Heiko Mas.

    Saudi Arabia: Israel's unilateral measures harm the peace process

    To the full article

    The United States and Israel have expressed hope that more Arab countries will follow in the footsteps of the UAE in the coming days. Like Israel, Saudi Arabia sees Iran as the biggest threat to the Middle East. The growing tension between Tehran and Riyadh has raised speculation that their common interests will lead to cooperation, and there have been signs of this in recent years. However, Saudi Arabia, its great neighbor and ally, is in a more problematic position in light of the king being "the guardian of the holy places of Islam."

    The agreement between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, mediated by the Trump administration, could serve as a strategic leap to Abu Dhabi's regional and global status, to the point that it will overtake its neighbor and strong ally, especially in critical relations with Washington.
