Saudi Arabia and Israel move closer to making peace

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu arrived in Saudi Arabia with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

It is noted that the meeting took place in the city of Neom. It was also attended by the head of the Mossad, Yossi Cohen, and the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, Mohammed ibn Salman Al Saud. According to the newspaper, Netanyahu’s private jet went to Neom from Tel Aviv.

Netanyahu’s trip to the kingdom comes against the backdrop of Pompeo’s visit to the Gulf countries. Perhaps the negotiations were about an agreement between the countries, Haaretz notes. If so, Saudi Arabia and Israel are close to making peace.

On September 15, Israel, the UAE and Bahrain signed a peace agreement at the White House. According to the agreements signed, Abu Dhabi and Manama recognize the State of Israel, while it will suspend the spread of sovereignty to Jewish settlements in the West Bank. In a joint statement, the countries announced that the move would allow further progress towards peace in the Middle East.

In addition, the United States called on Sudan to quickly decide to normalize relations with Israel. In exchange, Washington should remove him from the list of sponsors of terrorism. Following the deal, Khartoum is also due to receive $ 7 billion in aid.
