According to a joint statement released by the United States, Bahrain, and Israel, the new relationship will help transform the Middle East into a region of “stability, security, and prosperity.” Not only does the deal normalize relations between the two countries, but Israel also agreed to allow all Muslims to visit and pray at the Al Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem.
The two countries praised President Trump for his dedication to peace in the Middle East and for bringing nations together. The president said there wasn’t a “more powerful response to the hatred that spawned 9/11 than this agreement.”
