The Turkish Foreign Ministry condemned the agreement and said that the history and people of the Middle East were neither forgiven nor forgotten about what the United Arab Emirates was doing and that it was a violation of the 2002 Arab peace initiative. She called the uae`s behavior hypocritical and added that the Palestinians opposed the agreement. [80] President Recep Tayyip Erdogan then said that Turkey was considering suspending or severing diplomatic relations with the United Arab Emirates in retaliation and recalling its ambassador from Abu Dhabi. [80] Gantz thanked Trump, Netanyahu and Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan for the march of the peace agreement and said he was showing an alliance among Middle Eastern nations that wanted stability and mutual cooperation. He also showed Israel`s eternal desire to make peace with neighbouring countries in favour of him, while strengthening Israel`s image on the world stage and creating a better future for the region. [35] Netanyahu, interviewed by journalists, admitted that negotiations with the United Arab Emirates were secret because the United States asked him to do so. [36] On August 21, Prince Turki bin Faisal Al Saud wrote in an obvious response to Trump, who said on August 19 that he expected Saudi Arabia to accede to the agreement, that the price to pay for normalizing relations with Israel was the creation of a sovereign Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital. He added that any Arab country that wants to follow in the footsteps of the United Arab Emirates should in future demand a higher price from Israel for peace. [62] The parties also express their common interest in establishing and developing mutually beneficial cooperation in the field of exploration and use of space for peaceful purposes, in a manner consistent with national legislation and the international obligations of each party. This cooperation may include the implementation of joint programs, projects and activities in the fields of science, space research, space technologies and education, the exchange of experts, information and best practices, and the promotion of cooperation between their respective space industries. If the pact were respected, the UAE would be only the third Arab country to have normal diplomatic relations with Israel, with Egypt, which signed a peace agreement in 1979, and Jordan, which signed a treaty in 1994. It could reorganise the long-running impasse in the region and perhaps lead other Arab nations to follow suit by forging an increasingly explicit alliance with Israel against their mutual enemy in Iran, while at least for the time being removing Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu`s explosive annexation plan. The South African Department of International Relations and Cooperation regretted that the agreement was reached without consultation with the Palestinians, although the agreement was linked to their future, and noted that the agreement did not guarantee a permanent suspension of the annexation of parts of the West Bank.
