Report: Biden Administration Seeks to Expand Historic Abraham Accords


The accords, brokered by President Trump and his secretary of state, Mike Pompeo, created peace deals between Israel and several Arab states.

After an initial reluctance to strengthen and expand the historic peace treaties, the Associated Press reports the Biden administration will now seek to encourage further deals between Israel and other Mideast countries.

In addition, “we’re looking at countries that may want to join in and, and take part and begin to normalize their own relations with Israel. That, too, has been very much part of conversations I’ve had with, with several of my counterparts,” Blinken added.

Sudan and Oman are the two countries analysts believe may sign peace deals with Israel in the future.
