Speaking before the United Nations General Assembly on Friday, September 22, 2023 in New York. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu declared that “such a peace will go a long way to ending the Arab-Israeli conflict.”
Without laying out a clear plan for overcoming the many challenges to such an agreement. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stated to the UN General Assembly on Friday, September 22. Ps of Israel’s isolation in 1948 and the six nations that have normalized relations with it. Including four that did so in 2020 as part of the so-called Abraham Accords.
Without a doubt, the Abraham Accords signaled the beginning of a new era of peace. But according to me. An even more significant development—a historic peace between Israel and Saudi Arabia—is just around the corner. “A new Middle East will truly be created if Israel and Saudi Arabia can reach peace.”
United States-led talks
A number of obstacles stand in the way of such an accord. Notably the Saudis’ insistence on the advancement of Palestinian state-building. Which Netanyahu’s government, the most religious and nationalist in Israeli history, finds difficult to accept. Additionally, the Saudis want a defense agreement with the US and assistance in developing their own civilian nuclear program, which has increased concerns about an arms race with Iran.
On Friday night, Netanyahu told Fox News that the “window of opportunity” for a settlement with the Saudis was “the next few months.” “We might delay it by quite a few years if we don’t accomplish it in the next few months,” Netanyahu remarked.
The US-led negotiations, according to Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, are getting closer to a conclusion, he said in a recent interview with Fox News. He chose not to elaborate on the Saudis’ exact demands of the Palestinians. According to Netanyahu, the Palestinians “could greatly benefit from a broader peace,” and he added: “They should be part of that process, but they should not have a veto over the process.”
