Pompeo: Iran threat reason for M.East peace deals

The jointly recognized "common threat from Iran" is the reason why Arab states are ready to make United States-brokered peace deals with Israel now, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told Al-Arabiya in an interview published on Sunday. Pompeo added he is certain more countries will join the United Arab Emirates, Bahrein and Sudan in recognizing Israel.

Pompeo stressed the countries are deciding to have peace with Israel because of US leadership and after the US explained "the risks in the Middle East from the Islamic Republic of Iran."

He also added Washington "would love for the Palestinians to engage with Israel [but] their leadership has rejected President Trump’s vision for peace."
