U.S President Trump says, Kuwait is excited to bound ties with Jerusalem, following Bahrain and UAE, reiterating his words, that 8 Arab nations are planning to establish their relationships with Israel.

President Trump said Friday, following a meeting with Kuwait’s Ruling Emir (Sheikh Sabah Al Ahmad Al Sabah), Son, that soon Kuwait may normalize their ties with Israel.

“The Kuwaitis are so excited that we signed the first two countries and I think they’ll end up fairly quickly being a part of it,” Trump said at a press briefing.

Last Tuesday, Bahrain and UAE have signed the Abraham Accord in a ceremonial event at the White House with Benjamin Netanyahu, Israeli Prime Minister.

Numerous Arab countries are reportedly in line to build ties with Israel including Morocco, Sudan, and Oman.

Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia remains non-committal but offers support to the Saudi backed proposal in 2002 that reiterates full diplomatic ties by the Muslim world, in exchange for the establishment of a Palestinian state based on the 1967 agreement.

Last month, Kuwaiti officials had announced their rejection of normalizing ties with Israel.
