Israel and the United Arab Emirates reached a historic peace deal on Thursday that will lead to a full normalization of diplomatic relations between the two Middle Eastern nations in an agreement that U.S. President Donald Trump helped broker.

“Now that the ice has been broken I expect more Arab and Muslim countries will follow the United Arab Emirates,” he said.
