“I am very hopeful that we will see other Arab nations will join in this,” said Mike Pompeo, who was starting a Mideast tour in Jerusalem and also scheduled to visit Sudan, Bahrain, and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) during his five-day official visit.
On the other hand, the Israeli Prime Minister has also appreciated the agreement between UAE and Israel. “I hope we will have the good news in the future, maybe in the near future,” he added.
Washington’s top diplomat has once again stressed on the goal of the President of the United States (US) that “Iran will never have a nuclear weapon.”
He further urged the other world power to maintain an official ban on trade or other commercial activity on Iran.
On the other hand, the Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan maintained that Islamabad could not recognize Israel as a state unless it gave freedom to the Palestinians. “If we recognize Israel as a state and ignore its cruelty faced by the Palestinians, we will have to give up Indian Occupied Kashmir (IOK) as well, and this we cannot do,” PM Khan added.
