Board of Deputies President Marie van der Zyl has welcomed the historic peace deal between Israel, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain.
Marie said: “We have witnessed a historic moment. The tides are changing in the Middle East and a new era of peace and prosperity is here. The Abraham Accords signed between State of Israel and the United Arab Emirates, and the State of Israel and the Kingdom of Bahrain, are an example of the peaceful partnerships that can exist in the region. It is my sincerest hope that this development and this spirit of cooperation will lead to peace with other Arab neighbours, including the Palestinians, and greatly enhance the security and flourishing of all in the Middle East.”
