Israel and the United Arab Emirates have agreed to forge a path toward normal diplomatic relations, and Israel said as part of the agreement it will suspend its controversial plans to annex more territory in the West Bank.

The historic deal was brokered during a call between leaders of the two nations and President Trump.

The UAE’s leader, Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Zayed, announced on Twitter that the deal calls for “setting a roadmap towards establishing a bilateral relationship.”

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called the deal a historic breakthrough toward peace in the Middle East and the launch of a “new era” in Israeli relations with the Arab world.
