TEHRAN (IQNA) – Emirati citizens who oppose Abu Dhabi’s deal with the Zionist regime aimed at normalization of ties have founded an association against normalization of relations with Israel.

 

According to Anadolu Agency, the founders of the association say it is a civil institute that is opposed to any form of ties with Israel, including economic, sports, political, and security ties.

In a statement, they described the UAE’s deal with Israel as betraying the Arab country’s nation.

They underlined the UAE nation’s support for the people of Palestine and remaining committed to the cause of Palestine.

The statement also said the association seeks to raise awareness about the dangers of normalization of ties with Israel.

Israel and the UAE on August 13 reached the deal that will lead to a full normalization of diplomatic relations between the two sides, in an agreement apparently brokered by US President Donald Trump.

Under the agreement, Israel has allegedly agreed to “temporarily” suspend applying its own rule to further areas in the occupied West Bank and the strategic Jordan Valley that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had pledged to annex.

According to the accord, Israeli and UAE delegations will meet in the coming weeks to sign bilateral agreements covering sectors including investment, tourism and direct flights and the opening of reciprocal embassies.

Abu Dhabi and Tel Aviv have also signed the first business deal since the accord. Emirati APEX National Investment company and Israel's Tera Group will cooperate on research and development related to COVID-19, including a testing device.
