Rivlin hails Israel-Bahrain accord, says deal with UAE opened ‘new chapter’

President Reuven Rivlin hails the US-brokered agreement between Israel and Bahrain to normalize diplomatic ties, saying the UAE’s decision to do so last month opened a “new chapter” in the Middle East.

“I would like to express my appreciation to the prime minister, the King of Bahrain, the President of the United States and all those who have worked on this wonderful achievement. I call on other Arab and Muslim countries to make peace with Israel — peace between peoples, peace for peace,” Rivlin says in a statement from his office.
