President Guelleh: There are countries that have a vested interest in relations with Israel

Djibouti (SD) – Djiboutian President Ismail Omar Guelleh has opposed the new Arab League diplomatic and economic ties with the Jewish state.

Speaking on the Israeli’s relations with the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain, President Guelleh said he considered the new agreements to be a breach of the 2002 peace agreement that stipulated Arab states would only restore Jewish relations if Israel and Palestine agreed to end colonialism and become two neighboring countries.

President Guelleh said they are still standing by the proposal from the late King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia in 2002, and that something beyond that is now unacceptable in Djibouti.

He emphasized that the countries that have stablished relations with the Jews state saw it as in their individual interests to reach an agreement with the Jewish state.

“There are countries that have a vested interest in relations with Israel, and the Palestinian people will survive, and their goals will one day be achieved and liberated, and we remain committed to our old goal,” he said.

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Bahrain have signed a US brokered agreement with the Israel, that agreement has been widely criticized by Islamic countries.
