The 13th session of the Supreme Council of the World Assembly of Islamic Awakening was held via a videoconference in Tehran on Wednesday, Tasnim News Agency reported.
The webinar, attended by more than 50 experts from various Islamic nations, was held as an extraordinary meeting to discuss the Persian Gulf Arab states’ decision to normalize ties with Israel.
The final statement of the meeting condemned the US-initiated deal of the century and the plans for normalization of relations with Israel, calling on all Muslim, freedom- and justice-seeking people, groups, parties, currents and governments in the world to provide full support for the cause of Palestine and help the oppressed Palestinian people until ultimate victory against the usurping, cruel and child-murdering Zionist regime.
On Tuesday, the UAE and Bahrain signed the controversial normalization agreements with Israel at the White House, amid outrage across Palestine and the Muslim world at the Arab regimes’ betrayal of the Palestinian cause.
The deals were signed between Emirati and Bahraini foreign ministers, Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan and Abdullatif bin Rashid Al Zayani, and Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. US President Donald Trump also penned his blessing into the accords.
The US-brokered deals make the UAE and Bahrain the third and fourth Arab states to take such steps to normalize ties since Israel signed treaties with Egypt in 1979 and Jordan in 1994.
