“I stand here today to extend a hand of peace and receive a hand of peace. Today, we are already witnessing a change in the heart of the Middle East, a change that will send hope around the world.”

Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed, the UAE Minister for Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation

“In terms of the Abraham Accords, that's transformational. It's enormously important to regional stability, it's important to Israel, it's just as important to the Muslim countries that have normalized with Israel. It has the potential to change the Middle East for the next 100 years.”

Former U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman

“You rightly noted our strong support for the normalization agreements, the Abraham Accords with Israel’s neighbors and beyond. We strongly support this and hopefully there’ll be other participants.”

Secretary Antony J. Blinken And Israeli Foreign Minister Yair Lapid Before Their Meeting, Remarks to the Press; June 27, 2021

“[On the Abraham Accords] I believe that we have planted some seeds now, and I think that the short term returns have been great, but I do believe that the long term returns are going to be extraordinary.”

Jared Kushner

“The energy and enthusiasm for the Accords across the region is truly remarkable. In less than a year, this warm peace is melting decades of misunderstanding and hostility across the region. This is a peace among peoples as much as it is among nations.”

Jared Kushner, Avi Berkowitz, Haim Saban, Yousef Al Otaiba, Abdulla R. Al-Khalifa, and Gabi Ashkenazi

“As Bahrainis, we drew from our national heritage as a beacon of religious tolerance in the Arab world during a time when religion has been too frequently used throughout the world as a divine sanction to spread hate and dissension.”

His Highness King Hamad bin Isa Al-Khalifa

“The UAE, through its benevolent approach that was established by Sheikh Zayed, embodies a global model of tolerance and coexistence. It has won the love of millions around the world. There are many people throughout the country who deeply love UAE ... coexist with us ... and share our dreams and aspirations.”

His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed

“We can see before us a golden opportunity for peace, security and prosperity for our region. Let us together ... waste no time in seizing it.”

Bahrain's Foreign Minister Abdullatif Al Zayani

“I am pleased with the steps taken for the resumption of contacts between our two countries. I am convinced that we shall make this momentum sustainable in order to promote the prospects of peace for all peoples in the region”

Morocco’s King Mohammed VI

“The normalization of relations between Israel and the UAE, Bahrain, Sudan, and Morocco, the first such agreements since 1994, are the biggest step forward for peace in a generation.”

Former U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo

“…strong support for Israel’s recent groundbreaking normalization agreements with countries in the Arab and Muslim world, and stressed the importance of advancing peace, security, and prosperity…”

Vice President Kamala Harris Call with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel March 4, 2021

“…discussed opportunities to enhance the partnership over the coming months, including by building on the success of Israel’s normalization arrangements with UAE, Bahrain, Sudan, and Morocco.”

Readout of National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan’s phone call with Israeli National Security Advisor Meir Ben Shabbat, January 24, 2021

“…underlined the strategic importance of the normalization of relations between the United Arab Emirates and Israel…[and] expressed his full support for strengthening and expanding these arrangements.”

President Joseph R. Biden, Jr. Call with Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Mohamed bin Zayed May 4, 2021

Opportunities

Maps of the Middle East have historically depicted the region as the center of the world’s trade. For decades, this ancient leg of the Silk Road facilitating trade, economic, cultural, political, and religious links between East and West was severed due to political disagreements and a culture of distrust that threatened regional economic development and international peace and security. The Abraham Accords, and the new connections which are now possible as a result, provide an unprecedented opportunity to reorient market access and global transportation hubs enabling improved efficiency and the establishment of trusted supply chains on terms favorable to the United States and its partners.
