White House advisor Jared Kushner, boarding the primary Israel-UAE industrial flight following a US-brokered deal to normalise ties, voiced hope Monday for a extra peaceable period within the area.
Flight 971 of Israel’s nationwide provider El Al then took off from Ben Gurion International Airport close to Tel Aviv, sure for Abu Dhabi.
The historic flight was carrying a joint US-Israeli delegation that was led on the American facet by Kushner, President Donald Trump’s son-in-law.
“While this is a historic flight, we hope that it will start an even more historic journey in the Middle East and beyond,” Kushner stated shortly earlier than boarding.
“The future does not have to be predetermined by the past. This is a very hopeful time, and I believe that so much peace and prosperity is possible in this region and around the world.”
The Israel-UAE settlement to normalise ties was introduced by Trump on August 13, making the UAE the primary Gulf nation and solely the third Arab nation to determine relations with Israel, after Egypt and Jordan.
The phrase “peace” was painted on the aircraft’s cockpit in Arabic, English and Hebrew.
