The Palestinian problem remains acute, despite the normalization of relations between Israel, the UAE and Bahrain. This is stated in a message published on September 17 at website Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia.
“It would be a mistake to think that without its settlement it will be possible to achieve reliable stabilization of the Middle East region. In this regard, we call on regional and international partners to intensify coordinated efforts in this important area, ”the message says.
It is noted that Russia is ready for joint work, including in close cooperation with the League of Arab States, and a mechanism recognized by the UN Security Council to support negotiations on a Middle East settlement.
On September 15, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, UAE Foreign Minister Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan and Bahraini Foreign Minister Abdel Latif al-Zayani signed agreements on the normalization of relations between the countries.
One of the agreements involves Israel’s suspension of the extension of its sovereignty to Jewish settlements in the West Bank. This condition is spelled out in Washington’s plan for the settlement of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.
The signing of agreements between the countries was condemned in Palestine. There they recalled their ambassador to the UAE and called the actions of Abu Dhabi aggression against its people and disregard for their rights and shrines.
