President Trump on Friday announced that Bahrain has agreed to normalize relations with Israel, another diplomatic win for the president coming after a similar agreement with the United Arab Emirates just last month.
“Another HISTORIC breakthrough today! Our two GREAT friends Israel and the Kingdom of Bahrain agree to a Peace Deal – the second Arab country to make peace with Israel in 30 days!” he tweeted.
The Gulf state recently had allowed flights between Israel and the UAE across its airspace, along with Saudi Arabia.
Pres Trump announces another mideast peace agreement between Israel and Bahrain. Includes full normalization of relations and exchange of embassies. Follows similar agreement between Israel and UAE which is to be signed at the WH on Wednesday.
