U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo arrived in Israel to discuss the recent peace deal with the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

While meeting with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Tel Aviv Monday, Pompeo reaffirmed America’s commitment to providing military aid for Israel. He also ensured that the UAE would be supplied with equipment to protect their people from the same threat.

Sec. Pompeo tweeted, “Good to be in Israel again today with @IsraeliPM @Netanyahu. We discussed ways to address Iranian malign influence in the region, shared challenges the U.S. and Israel face, and the benefit of the Abraham Accords. As always, the U.S. commitment to Israel’s security is unwavering” Monday morning.

This came after the peace agreement was brokered by the Trump administration and significantly reduced tensions between the two countries. Pompeo made the following remarks on the topic:

“The United States has a legal requirement with respect to qualitative military edge. We will continue to honor that, but we have a 20-plus year security relationship with the United Arab Emirates as well where we have provided them with technical assistance and military assistance. And we will now continue to review that process to continue to make sure that we are delivering them with the equipment that they need to secure and defend their own people from the same threat.”

Democrat presidential candidate and former Obama VP Joe Biden, attempted to take partial credit for the historic peace deal, saying he laid the groundwork for the agreement.

Biden praised the agreement, under which Israel and the UAE will achieve full normalization of relations. He promised that he and Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) would build on the deal if they are elected to office in November, as previously reported by 100% FED Up.

Pompeo is expected to visit other Middle Eastern across the UAE and Bahrain in an effort to introduce a normalization process between Israel and its regional neighbors.
