This agreement is “a stab in the back to the Palestinians and Muslims,” according to Iran, which noted that the Palestinian people “will never forgive this sin.”
The Iranian government described this Friday (08/14/2020) as “strategic stupidity” the agreement reached the day before between Israel and the United Arab Emirates to normalize their relations and warned that it will strengthen regional opposition to Tel Aviv.
This pact “will undoubtedly result in a further strengthening of the Axis of Resistance in the region by promoting unity and solidarity against the Zionist regime,” the Iranian Foreign Ministry warned in a statement.
Foreign thus alluded to the anti-Israel axis led by Iran and made up of Syria and groups such as the Palestinian Hamas and the Lebanese Hezbollah.
“The oppressed people of Palestine and all the free nations of the world will never forgive the normalization of relations with the occupier and the criminal regime of Israel,” he added.
The United Arab Emirates and Israel agreed on Thursday to normalize their relations, within the framework of a historic agreement that makes the federation of seven emirates the third Arab country with which the Israeli State maintains diplomatic relations, following the agreements signed with Jordan (1994 ) and Egypt (1979).
The agreement, announced by US President Donald Trump, calls for Israel to renounce its plan to annex the Palestinian territories of the occupied West Bank. However, the Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, did not confirm it and specified that this annexation was “postponed” but that Israel “has not given up” on carrying it out.
Iran, a declared enemy of Israel, called the Abu Dhabi decision “shameful” and warned against any Israeli interference in the Gulf. “The Emirati government and the other states at its side will be responsible for this agreement,” Tehran said.
