Signing Of The Peace Agreement

On 21 August, Prince Turki bin Fayçal Al Saud wrote in an obvious reply to Mr. Trump, who said on 19 August that he expected Saudi Arabia to accede to the agreement, that the price to be paid for normalizing relations with Israel would be 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] He said that there could be no development without peace, nor peace without just and just development, all of which would contribute to democracy. He added that the country was waiting for the two rebel leaders who did not sign the agreement – Abdel Aziz Helou and Abdel Wahad Nour – to join him. But the agreement triggered an immediate counter-reaction in the region of opposing parts of the ideological spectrum. At least some Israeli settlers and their political allies were disappointed that Mr. Netanyahu abandoned his plan to claim west Bank sovereignty, while the Palestinians felt abandoned by an Arab nation that, even without the threat of annexation, locked them in an unsustainable status quo. Discussions began in 1994. Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin and Foreign Minister Shimon Peres told King Hussein that Jordan could be “excluded from the big game” after the Oslo accords with the PLO. Hussein met with Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak and Syrian President Hafez al-Assad. Mubarak encouraged him, but Assad simply told him to “talk” and not sign an agreement.

US President Bill Clinton urged Hussein to start peace talks and sign a peace agreement with Israel and promised that Jordan`s debt would be cancelled. Efforts were successful and Jordan signed a no-bell agreement with Israel. Rabin, Hussein and Clinton signed the Washington Declaration on July 25, 1994 in Washington, D.C. [5] According to the statement, Israel and Jordan ended the official state of hostility and would begin negotiations to “end bloodshed and mourning” and a just and lasting peace. [6] The Greek Foreign Ministry congratulated both nations and called it a diplomatic victory in the hope that it had brought peace to the region. [113] Ukrainian President Wolodymyr Zelensky made a phone call to Netanyahu. [114] Other nations, such as Austria, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Romania and Kosovo, also welcomed the agreement. [115] [116] [117] The Bulgarian Foreign Ministry spoke of an “extraordinary diplomatic breakthrough” that could change the future of the Middle East in the hope that it would bring peace and improve the lives of the people of the Middle East, and congratulated both countries.

[118] Polish Foreign Minister Jacek Czaputowicz discussed the agreement with UAE Foreign Minister Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan by telephone and congratulated him and said cooperation was needed to resolve the Middle East`s problems.
