UAE President Mohammed bin Zayed hails Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s Fox News interview earlier this week during which the de-facto Saudi leader said a US-brokered Israel-Saudi normalization deal is getting closer “every day.”

“The broadcast interview with my brother Mohammed bin Salman was a testament to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s remarkable transformation and long record of achievement,” tweets MBZ. “United by our shared success story, the UAE and Saudi Arabia stand together in empowering generations to come.”
