The special adviser on international affairs to the speaker of the Iranian Parliament, Hossein Amir-Abdollahian declared the agreement a huge betrayal to the Islamic cause and Palestinians.

The strong condemnation has also been made by the Turkish Foreign Ministry on Saturday regarding the action of Bahrain to initiate diplomatic ties with Israel, further dealing a fresh blow to efforts to defend the Palestinian cause.

“It will further encourage Israel to continue illegitimate practices towards Palestine and its efforts to strengthen the occupation of Palestinian lands permanent,” the ministry statement said.

Jordan’s Minister for Foreign Affairs Ayman Safadi has given a statement on Friday, that the essential steps to realize just and comprehensive peace in the region should come from Israel.

After the announcement of the deal in order to normalize the ties between Israel and Bahrain, the minister added that Israel should stop all its procedures to undermine the solution based on two independent states that can end the illegal occupation of the Palestinian lands.

“The imprudent leaders in the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain must not pave the way for the Zionist schemes and lessons should be learned from history. Tomorrow is late! The US lifeline has wiped out for years” tweeted Amir-Abdollahian, also a former deputy minister for foreign affairs.

“This is a historic breakthrough to further peace in the Middle East,” the United States, Bahrain, and Israel said during a joint statement,” it said. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the agreement marks a “new era of peace.”The king of Bahrain reiterated the requirement of reaching a just and lasting peace between the Israelis and Palestinians, based on the solution of two independent states during a call with Netanyahu and US President Donald Trump, Bahrain’s state news agency BNA said on Friday.
