On September 15th leaders from Israel and the UAE signed a peace treaty known as the Abraham Accords Peace Treaty: Treaty of Peace, Diplomatic Relations and Full Normalization Between the United Arab Emirates and the State of Israel.
Within this blog, we will explore the significance of the Abraham Accords and look at what can be expected from the deal.
The deal which was partly brokered by the US is highly significant for the region. Upon signing the agreement, the UAE became the third Arab country, following Egypt in 1979 and Jordan in 1994, to normalise relations with Israel. The UAE is also the first country in the Persian Gulf region to normalise relations with Israel.
The deal contains key areas of mutual interest and builds on earlier agreements with Arab countries.
The document which was revealed in mid-September and is a historic peace treaty that explains in detail on what UAE/Israeli normalisation means.
Tolerance and interfaith co-existence are mentioned regularly also important points in the accord and are mentioned very early in the text.
There is scope for a range of ties between the two countries which will be developed by establishing embassies where negotiations on co-operation in fields such as innovation, health care, aviation, environment and energy to spur economic activity and innovation.
There is also a point in the text related to security in which the UAE and Israel agree to prevent any “terrorist or hostile activities” against each other.
The UN charter is mentioned and reflects the importance of not undermining any multilateral commitments made by either country or any other obligations they might have related to treaties with other countries.
The historic agreement is set to be registered with the United Nations and will soon be legally ratified by both Israel and UAE.
