France Foreign Affairs Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian

France welcomes the normalization of diplomatic relations between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, Foreign Affairs Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said on Thursday.

Iran PressEurope: Israel’s decision to suspend its planned annexation of areas of the occupied West Bank under the historic agreement is a “positive step”, Le Drian said in a statement, adding that the suspension “must become a definitive measure,” reporting by Reuters. 

The accord paved the way for a resumption of talks between Israelis and Palestinians with the aim to establish two states, he claimed, calling it “the only option” to achieve peace in the region.
