Malaysia stated that the agreement was a sovereign right of the United Arab Emirates, but that it would continue to support Israel`s withdrawal from the Palestinian territories.  The Philippine Ministry of Foreign Affairs issued a statement in which it welcomed the agreement and hoped it would contribute to peace and security in the Middle East.  Costa Rica has declared that this is a historic step that helps peace and has the effect of illuminating the region`s problems. Foreign Minister Rodolfo Solano Quiros said he welcomed the news, as the two nations were their allies, and that he was trying to continue working with them.  The Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs welcomed the agreement and added that it was the first step towards peace and stability.  Brazil made similar comments.  The Tunisian People`s Representatives` Assembly criticized the agreement and said it was in solidarity with the Palestinian cause.  Many people protested outside the United Arab Emirates Embassy in Tunis, people burned Israeli flags and photos of UAE President Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, while supporting the Palestinian cause for independence.  Tunisian President Kais Saied then said that Tunisia was not interfering in the agreement and would not oppose, but would support the Palestinians.  On 18 August, Prime Minister Imran Khan declared that Pakistan would never recognize Israel until a Palestinian state had been created, no matter what another country, a statement in line with the vision of Pakistani founder Muhammad Ali Jinnah. Mr.
Imran Khan added that it was necessary to think about the injustices suffered by the Palestinians before trying to normalize relations with Israel.  But what he discovered was that the Europeans opposed it, the Arab states opposed it, including its future potential allies in the Gulf. And in fact, it`s interesting to note that the Trump administration wasn`t enthusiastic about it either. Partly because the United States and others have talked about it in the United States, it is a red line for us. We cannot support your peace efforts if Israel takes this step. At the end of the evening, as promised, the door opens. And Prime Minister Netanyahu and his wife Sara enter. And first of all, it`s a bit of a stylish case. People get up. No one is sure what to do. He`s not really going to sit down and join us for dessert. But it is immediately clear that Netanyahu wants to take advantage of this moment to bring home a point.
And the point he wants to bring home is that Israel and the United Arab Emirates have reason to be more friendly to each other. And as it does by showing their common enemy, Iran. Joe Biden, Trump`s opponent in the 2020 U.S. presidential election, welcomed the agreement because it “builds on the efforts of several governments to promote broader Arab-Israeli openness, including the Obama Biden administration`s efforts to build on the Arab peace initiative.”  The Government of Oman supported the agreement (which it described as “historic”).  The Grand Mufti of Oman, Ahmed bin Hamad al-Khalili, indirectly criticized the treaty.  Ahmed Mulla Talal, spokesman for the Iraqi government, said that Iraq would not interfere in the sovereign affairs of other countries, but that its laws did not allow for the normalization of relations with Israel.  UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres welcomed “any initiative that could promote peace and security in the Middle East region.”  Guterres spokesman Stephane Dujarric welcomed the agreement and said he was suspending “Israeli annexation plans for parts of the occupied West Bank” that Mr. Guterres had repeatedly called for and said that “peace in the Middle East is more important than ever.”  On behalf of the United States and Russia, co-sponsors of the Middle East peace process, they welcome this great opportunity of history and hope.
