Pompeo says Israel-UAE agreement is enormous step forward

VIENNA, Aug 13 – An agreement on normalising relations reached between Israel and the United Arab Emirates on Thursday is an “enormous” step forward on the “right path”, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told reporters with him on a trip to central European countries.

Pompeo made his remarks shortly before taking off from Slovenia for Austria’s capital Vienna.

The agreement, which U.S. President Donald Trump helped broker, will lead to the full normalisation of diplomatic relations between the two Middle Eastern nations. (Reporting by Kirsti Knolle; Editing by Hugh Lawson)
