Iran Calls Israel-Bahrain Normalization 'Shameful'

Iran Calls Israel-Bahrain Normalization 'Shameful'

The United Arab Emirates will establish diplomatic relations with Israel, a fellow USA ally it has never gone to war with, formalizing ties that go back several years.

"Pakistan's position on Palestine remains the same", spokesperson Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri said while commenting on the Bahrain and Israel peace deal, on Saturday.

This came a month after he mediated ties between the United Arab Emirates and Israel.

Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto will be the only diplomatic leader from the European Union to attend the ceremony, with his office saying he was invited by Trump, according to the Reuters news agency.

It is now legal for companies in the UAE and Bahrain to do business with Israel.

Bahrain's normalization "will remain in the historical memory of the oppressed and downtrodden people of Palestine and the world's free nations forever", the statement added.

About two weeks ago, he took the first commercial flight between Israel and the United Arab Emirates. The UAE claimed the deal allowed them to buy F-35 warplanes from the U.S. but Israel has tried to block this.

Turkey also condemned the peace agreement and promised to protect the Palestinians, and Hezbollah also condemned the agreement, calling Bahrain a "treacherous puppet regime".

US President Donald Trump on Friday brokered another peace deal in the Middle East with Bahrain announcing that it would normalise diplomatic ties with Israel. The move represents another foreign policy win for the president as the US approaches the November presidential election. It said: "Oman hopes this new strategic path taken by some Arab countries will contribute to bringing about peace based on an end to the Israeli occupation of Palestinian lands and on establishing an independent Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as capital".

Shaath referred to the demand to withdraw from the Arab League and said, "We will continue our struggle against Israel despite normalization, but are we required to fight in Arab countries?" Egypt signed a peace deal in 1979 and was followed by Jordan in 1994.

The easing of these Arab, Sunni countries relations with Israel comes as a result of their common fears emanating from the threats to them from Iran.

The Palestinian Authority (PA) has condemned the Bahrain-Israel normalization deal as another betrayal by an Arab state.

The deal is scheduled to be signed on Tuesday at the White House.

"The American efforts aim to approve the Israeli plan of annexing what remains of the Palestinian lands, which is a flagrant violation of global legitimacy and worldwide resolutions", Ashrawi noted.

"The Bahraini-American-Israeli agreement to normalize relations is now part of a bigger package in the region".
