After the UAE, the rest of the Gulf states will inevitably sign an agreement with Israel, Kushner said, now the question is how long it will take. “The reality is that most of these countries want to grow their economies,” he said. They felt that if they deprived themselves of it, they would join the Iranian game, where they are interested in building a fragile and turbulent Middle East. “Source: Al Jazeera
