German FM on Israel-Bahrain deal: ‘Another important step toward peace in the region’

German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas hails the normalization agreement between Israel and Bahrain.

“The establishment of diplomatic relations between Israel and Bahrain is another important step toward peace in the region,” Maas says in a statement.

Maas says he discussed the matter with his Bahraini counterpart Abdullatif Al Zayani when he hosted him yesterday in Berlin.

“I am hopeful that new impulses for the peace process between Israelis and Palestinians will emerge [from] this agreement,” Maas adds. “Germany and the EU continue to endorse the goal of a negotiated two-state solution as a basis for a just and viable peace. We will continue to work toward this.”
