Wed 13 October 2021:
Qatari Foreign Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdul Rahman Al Thani on Wednesday ruled out that Arab-Israeli normalization agreements will resolve the Middle East peace crisis.
This came during the second day of the Global Security Forum held in the Qatari capital, Doha.
Bin Abdul Rahman stressed that regional peace process does not have any horizon and therefore the Abraham Accords between Arab countries and Israel cannot contribute to resolving the crisis.
“We do not see any prospects for the peace process, and therefore we believe that the Abraham Agreement (signed by the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Morocco and Sudan with Israel) cannot contribute to resolving the crisis,” the top diplomat said.
“We should not focus on economic normalization and forget the (Israeli) occupation of Arab lands.”
Last year, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain signed US-sponsored agreements to normalize relations with Israel. Sudan and Morocco followed suit.
The Qatari minister said his country’s relations with the US “extend for decades”.
“We have strong relations with various American administrations, and even with the administration of Trump,” he said, adding that the relation between Doha and Washington “is important for security and stability in the Gulf region.”
