Press Release

Laurens, S.C. - Congressman Jeff Duncan (SC-03) released the following statement on the announcement of a historic peace agreement between Israel and the United Arab Emirates:

“The historic peace agreement between Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) on full normalization of diplomatic relations is yet another strong, unprecedented move by President Trump. We haven’t seen a successful peace deal come to fruition in the Middle East since the Israel-Jordan Peace Treaty was signed over 25 years ago, and today’s agreement would not have been possible without the hard work of the Trump Administration. Not only is this development a vital step towards establishing long-term peace in the Middle East, but it also further isolates aggressive countries like Iran, and sends a message that the United States is a strong leader in diplomatic relations. I hope that more countries in the region will follow the UAE’s lead and work towards peace with Israel.”
