US Deputy National Security Council Adviser Jon Finer acknowledges the importance of the Abraham Accords and stresses the Biden administration’s plans to build on those normalization agreements between Israel and its Arab neighbors.

However, Finer knocks the Trump administration’s strategy concerning the Abraham Accords, saying “they did not contain anything that amounted to a step forward for Palestinians.”

“We think that is an important part of Israeli-Saudi normalization. We think the Saudis would support that too, especially in light of the current conflict that has broken out. That will have to be a piece of the puzzle going forward,” Finer says.
