Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said today the peace deal recently agreed to with the United Arab Emerites will eventually also lead to peace with the Palestinian people, controlled by the Iranian-backed terror group Hamas.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says in a statement that he expects “additional countries” to normalize their ties with Israel after the agreement with the UAE, and that it will eventually also drive peace with the Palestinians, reported The Times of Israel.
“This is a historic step that advances peace with the Arab world, and eventually will also promote peace — real, secure and supervised peace — with the Palestinians as well,” Netanyahu said.
Netanyahu also said Israel still plans to annex the West Bank at some point in the future.
“The American president asked me to wait on the extension of Israeli sovereignty over more lands,” he declared in a speech last week.
“There is no change to my plan to extend sovereignty, our sovereignty in Judea and Samaria, in full coordination with the United States.
“Israel will have comprehensive peace agreements with other Arab countries without returning to the 1967 borders.”
