At a New York event marking the one-year anniversary of the signing of the Abraham Accords, Israel’s Ambassador to the UN Gilad Erdan lauds the role the US has played in promoting the accords.

“Today, we celebrate the landmark agreements and the critical role the United States played, and continues to play in making them a success, for which we thank them very much. The fact that the Accords have received such strong bipartisan support is a testament to their great importance,” Erdan says.

The Israeli envoy also uses the opportunity to jab at the Palestinians, saying, “perhaps even the Palestinians, as they see the benefits of our peace and the prosperity it brings, will finally view these Accords as an opportunity and not a threat.”
