Britain’s former Defence Secretary, Dr Liam Fox, was appointed to chair the Abraham Accords Group, which reached between Israel, UAE and Bahrain on August 13, 2020.
The Abraham Accords Group was declared to promote normalisation with Israel across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region.
Dr Fox welcomed his appointment and said:
“I am delighted to announce that I have accepted an invitation from the Ambassadors of those three countries to set up and lead an institution in the UK to promote these Accords and the wider cause of peace across the Middle East.”
In 2020, the US brokered a series of agreements between Israel and several Arab states, notably the UAE, Bahrain, Sudan and Morocco.
The declaration came as the UAE and Israel strengthened the normalisation deal reached between the two countries last year.
Shortly after the deal, Israelis started flocking to the UAE amid large-scale Palestinian and Arab anger.
Bahrain, Morocco, and Sudan have followed in the UAE’s footsteps and signed a normalisation deal with Israel.
A step was strongly condemned by the Palestinian Authority and widely welcomed by world powers.
Though widely celebrated as promoting peace in the Middle East and reigning in Israeli expansionist policies in Palestine, the Abraham Accords have failed on both levels.
Israel has recently waged massive 11-day aggression on the besieged Gaza Strip.
253 Palestinians, including 66 children, were killed during the attacks.
