Both Kuwait & Sudan are among those expected to be next concerning the normalization of ties with the Jewish State; Both see an opportunity to improve their relationship with the United States as well.
US President Donald Trump announced on Friday that he expects more countries to normalize their ties with Israel in the near future. One of the countries he cited is Kuwait, referencing their excitement towards the other recent countries to sign agreements with Israel; the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Bahrain. Also listed as a serious possibility is the northeastern African country of Sudan.
Both countries also see an opportunity to improve their relationship with the US in the process. For example, Sudan is seeking financial aid from the US and to be removed from the US list of sponsored terror.
In reference to Kuwait, Trump said that they “are so excited that we signed the first two countries and I think they’ll end up fairly quickly being a part of it.”
In reference to other agreements, Trump also stated in a separate segment that “They are coming fast, and they know it’s great for them and great for the world. We intend to deliver more peace agreements shortly, and I have never been more optimistic for the future of the region. There is no blood in the sand. Those days are hopefully over. These groundbreaking peace deals are the dawn of a new Middle East. By taking a different approach, we have achieved different outcomes – far superior outcomes.”
Trump also acknowledged how quickly all of these countries are hopping on board after many critics doubted if it could ever be done. Adding to this, previous US administrations also failed to make anything happen.
