Bahrain foreign minister arrives at White House to sign Abraham Accord

The UAE and Bahrain are set to sign historic agreements with Israel today in a ceremony overseen by Donald Trump in Washington.

The Abraham Accord means the two Gulf countries will join Egypt and Jordan as the only  Arab nations to have full relations with Israel.

The ceremony will be attended by the UAE’s foreign minister Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed, Abdullatif bin Rashid Al-Zayani, the foreign minister of Bahrain and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Natanyahu.

The signing ceremony will take place at 12 p.m. on the South Lawn of the White House – the same place where Israeli and Palestinian leaders signed the Oslo Accords in 1993.
