Blunt Welcomes U.S.-Backed Diplomatic Agreement Between Israel and the UAE

August 13, 2020

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Roy Blunt (Mo.) today welcomed President Trump’s announcement that Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) have, with the support of the United States, reached a diplomatic agreement that will pave the way for normalized relations between the two countries:

“This announcement is the most significant move in decades to promote peace and understanding in the Middle East. Leaders in the UAE and Israel are showing bold and courageous willingness to create a new way forward. When I visited the World Special Olympics in Abu Dhabi last year, the UAE welcomed athletes from all over the world, including Israel, as part of the ‘Year of Inclusion.’ President Trump’s leadership was absolutely necessary to this outcome. Team USA wins when our friends also become friends with each other.”
