Hind Al Soulia - Riyadh - Israel’s Cabinet on Monday approved a recent deal to establish ties with the UAE and will pass the bill to Parliament for ratification, officials said.

The move approved the Abraham Accord to establish ties with the UAE in exchange for a freeze on the annexation of West Bank and Jordan Valley lands. The agreement was announced in August and signed at a ceremony at the White House last month.

Parliament is expected to discuss the bill on Thursday. The Cabinet on Monday only discussed the UAE-Israel side of the agreement, as the agreement to establish ties with Bahrain has yet to be written up.

The bill is to be presented to Parliament under the title “Treaty of Peace, Diplomatic Relations and Full Normalisation Between the United Arab Emirates and The State of Israel”.

It lays out a commitment to “achieve a just, comprehensive, realistic and enduring solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict” that meets the legitimate needs and aspirations of both peoples, and to advance comprehensive Middle East peace, stability and prosperity”.

Parliament is not expected to oppose the proposal.

The UAE became the first country in over two decades to establish official ties with Israel after Egypt in 1979 and Jordan in 1994 signed peace deals. Bahrain announced that it was following suit and also signed the Abraham Accord at the same ceremony.

Since the move, UAE and Israeli companies have signed a raft of deals aimed at building ties and sharing expertise on important issues from technology, security and healthcare.

The UAE has made clear that normalising relations with Israel does not change its stance in supporting an independent Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its capital.

The Abraham Accord was hailed by international figures who said it could help in restarting long-stalled peace talks.

On Sunday, Sheikh , the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and also Deputy Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces, spoke with Israeli's prime minister about cooperation and stability in the region.

The two leaders talked about strengthening ties and "examined prospects for peace and the need for stability, co-operation and development in the region," the Crown Prince wrote in a tweet.
