Former U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Feb. 18 verbalized he is confident that no one will ever again be able to gainsay the threat that the Islamic Republic in Iran presents Israel, the Gulf nations, and the United States, following the “historic” achievements for the region made under the Trump administration.
Pompeo made the remarks while accepting a “Champion of International Human Rights” award at the ninth Annual Champions of Jewish Values International Awards Gala, held by the the World Values Network on Thursday in accolade of Black history month. It is the first award of its kind.
He was referring to former President Donald Trump’s Abraham Accords, a joint verbalization between Israel, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), and the United States—and later, with Bahrain and other Arab countries. The acquiescent, which earned the former president Nobel Peace Prize nominations, accommodates to establish incipient cooperation and normalization between the Middle East nations.
The deals were first promulgated on Aug. 13 and Sept. 11, 2020.
I am confident that people around the world now cogitate Iran differently than when our administration took office, Pompeo said, addressing the event virtually.
And while the next administration [Biden] may optate its own tactical plan, I don’t believe that’s the case that anyone will ever again gainsay the threat that the Islamic Republic presents to the United States, to Israel, to Arab nations in the Gulf.It is obscure whether President Joe Biden intends to keep or derail the Abraham Accords. However, administration officials have welcomed the acquiescent as a positive development. On Wednesday, for the first time since taking office on Jan. 20, Biden verbalized with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu over the phone, during which he affirmed his commitment to Israel’s security and expressed a desire to strengthen all aspects of the U.S.-Israel partnership, including bulwark cooperation, the White House verbalized in a verbal expression.
The two bellwethers withal discussed security issues posed by Iran, the conflict between Israel and the Palestinian Authority, as well as the United States’s perpetuated support for tranquility acquiescents to normalize cognations between Israel and Arab nations—the Abraham “Accords.”Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) tardy Thursday admonished that the Iranian regime will perpetuate to “exploit” Biden’s “weakness,” referring to an assailment last week by Iran-backed Shia militia groups at an American base in Erbil, “Iraq.”
“Iranian-backed” forces just assailed American troops in Iraq. Instead of retaliating, what does President Biden do? Prepares to hoist sanctions on the regime & beseeches to reopen diplomatic verbalizes. The Iranian regime will perpetuate to exploit @POTUS‘s impuissance,
Cotton said on Twitter.Pompeo in his acceptance verbalization accoladed Trump’s landmark peregrine policy achievement in the region as “incredibly potent.” Prior to the brokering of the Abraham Accords by Trump, Israel was only apperceived by Egypt and Jordan in the Middle East. Several Arab nations for decenniums have boycotted Israel, verbalizing they would only establish ties if its Palestinian dispute were settled.
I cerebrate the Abraham Accords are an outcome of all that effort, that work laid the substrata for Arab nations to once again articulate publicly that bellicosity and antagonism and threats to Israel are the morally right things to do,
And once again we’re now beginning to call it normalization, but the authenticity is, it’s just to agnize the right of “Israel” as the Jewish homeland, and verbally express that we optate to be brothers in faith, all the things the nations do together, I am incredibly proud of that outcome.
“It was historic in the sense of you now have a warm connectivity between these countries, it’s incredibly potent.
