Netanyahu says UAE deal signals end to 'land for peace'

Netanyahu said that the deal with the UAE - the first of its kind with a gulf state - is "good for peace, good for security, good for prosperity".

"In the last few days, the Emirates has sought to send messages to Iran through third parties that their deal with Israel isn't aimed at undermining their relations with Iran", Mosayeb Naeimi, a West Asia expert, told the Tehran Times.

On Sunday, the WAM news agency also reported the Emirates summoned Iran's top diplomat in the country to complain about speeches by officials in Tehran it said were "unacceptable and inflammatory and had serious implications for security and stability in the Gulf region". Its accord with Israel breaks that long-held tenet and could usher in agreements with other Arab states, undermining an Arab consensus that was a rare source of leverage for the Palestinians.

Netanyahu said that Israel and the UAE are "two of the most advanced economies in the world" and "two of the most moderate" countries that share the common goal of opposing Iran and terrorism. "Everybody wants to make peace with a strong country".

"I really believe that this step is a killer to the two-state solution", Erekat said.

"Peace should be established on the basis of the Palestinian state with east Jerusalem as its capital".

USA already sells weapons to the UAE Although the U.S. already ships a substantial amount of arms to the UAE the sales are often questioned by Congress which has even tried to block them on occasion because of the UAE partnering with the Saudis in Yemen where many claim there have been war crimes.

A senior United States official said on Friday that the White House has been in touch with "numerous" countries in the region, trying to see if more agreements would materialise.

The UAE's APEX National Investment and Israel's TeraGroup signed the "strategic commercial agreement" late Saturday in Abu Dhabi, WAM said in a statement.

Iran warned the UAE that ties will fundamentally change over the deal with Israel, its arch-enemy.

The two companies hope to develop a rapid test for coronavirus. Rouhani said Thursday's deal was linked with the USA election in November, as Trump seeks to win a second term in office.
