FM Ashkenazi hails UAE’s abolition of Israel boycott law: ‘An important step for real peace’

Foreign Minister Gabi Ashkenazi hails the UAE’s abolition of a law boycotting trade and financial agreements between Israel and the United Arab Emirates as part of the deal between the countries to normalize diplomatic ties.

“An important step for real peace, which will yield economic and commercial achievements for both peoples,” Ashkenazi says in a statement quoted by Hebrew media.

He also praises the Foreign Ministry, “which for two decades worked secretly and laid the diplomatic infrastructure for ties whose fruits we are seeing today.”
