Mustafa Barghouti,

Mustafa Barghouti, secretary general and co-founder of the Ramallah-based Palestinian National Initiative, said the deal between Israel and the UAE will not stop Netanyahu’s annexation plans.

“The Israelis and Emirates had relations already, there was never a struggle between them so I don’t know why they need to call it a peace agreement,” Barghouti told Al Jazeera.

“The reality is that the problem is with the Palestinian people, with the Israeli occupation of the Palestinian land, the problem is with the Israeli plan of annexation of Palestinian land which Netanyahu has confirmed one more time today that he is proceeding with.”

“The problem is with the system of racism and apartheid that Israel excises against the Palestinian people.”

President Trump announced a “historic” deal Thursday which will see Israel and the UAE open full diplomatic relations and Israel suspend its annexation plans in the West Bank.

Trump announced this through a joint statement from US, Israel and the UAE.

“President Donald Trump, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel and Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE spoke today and agreed to full normalisation of relations between Israel and UAE,” the statement said.

The breakthrough happened over a phone call between the three leaders.

The Prime Minister’s Office of Israel released a brief statement that Prime Minister Netanyahu, from his office, spoke by telephone with the US President and Abu Dhabi’s Crown Prince.

“The historic diplomatic breakthrough will advance peace in the Middle East region and is a testament to the bold diplomacy and vision of the three leaders and the courage of UAE and Israel to chart a new path that will unlock the great potential in the region. All three countries face many common challenges and will mutually benefit from today’s historic achievement,” the statement posted on Trump’s Twitter account said.

As part of the agreement, Israel will suspend declaring sovereignty over areas outlined in President Trump’s vision of peace and focus its efforts now on expanding its ties with other countries in the Arab and Muslim world.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Twitter: “The UAE and Israel’s decision to normalise relations is hugely good news. It was my profound hope that annexation did not go ahead in the West Bank and today’s agreement to suspend those plans is a welcome step on the road to a more peaceful Middle East.”
