Sisi said he valued this important step toward establishing stability and peace in the Middle East, in a way that achieves “a just and permanent settlement of the Palestinian issue.”
A joint statement of Bahrain’s King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa, Netanyahu and Trump was released by the White House hailing the “historic breakthrough.”
The announcement comes just days before Israel is to sign an accord with the United Arab Emirates in the White House. A representative of Bahrain is also expected to attend the signing.
Egypt similarly signed a U.S.-sponsored peace treaty with Israel in 1979.
