Lankford Issues Statement after Attending White House Signing Ceremony for Peace Agreements
WASHINGTON, DC – Senator James Lankford (R-OK) today released the following statement after attending the Abraham Accords signing ceremony at the White House:
“While many across the globe are focused exclusively on COVID, I am grateful the Administration has continued its work on peace in the Middle East. This is truly a historic moment, and for the first time in a quarter-century the US has led a major peace agreement between Israel and their Arab neighbors. Over the decades, too many wars have ignited over the simmering tensions in the Middle East. Today President Trump and his Administration have taken significant steps to bring the regional anger down and the cooperation up. Today’s ceremony at the White House is evidence that we can share our nation’s values internationally to encourage peace, religious freedom, protection of human rights, and democracy.”
The event included the signing of two separate peace agreements between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, and Israel and Bahrain.
