The United Nations has welcomed the agreement between the UAE and Israel that will lead to a full normalisation of diplomatic ties between the two states.

Nikolay Mladenov, the UN’s Special Co-ordinator for the Middle East Peace Process, said the deal would stop Israel’s annexation plans in the West Bank, “which the UN has consistently called for”.

“I hope it will create opportunities for Israeli and Palestinian re-engagement,” Mr Mladenov said on Twitter early on Friday.

“The UN will work with all for dialogue, peace and stability.”

The agreement, known as the Abraham Accord, came in a joint call between Sheikh , Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces, US President Donald and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

In a joint statement on Thursday, the US expressed its commitment to Middle East security.

"Huge breakthrough today. Historic peace agreement between our two great friends, Israel and the United Arab Emirates," Mr Trump tweeted.

“This deal is a significant step towards peace in the Middle East," he said at the White House.

The statement says that UAE and Israeli officials will meet “in the coming weeks” to sign agreements.
