The day after the release of the agreement between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian said Beijing was “pleased” that the two countries had taken steps to ease tensions in the Middle East.  He added: “We hope that the parties concerned can take concrete steps to return to a return to fair dialogue and negotiations,” adding that China intends to “play a constructive role” in the achievement of a Palestinian state.  The other possibilities are Oman and Morocco. And while Saudi Arabia is not officially a party to the agreement, the kingdom`s close relations with the Emiratis and Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman`s direct contact with Jared Kushner indicate their agreement. The parties recognize the importance of providing regular direct flights between Israel and the United Arab Emirates for passengers and cargo as an essential means for the development and promotion of their relations. They recognize the rights, privileges and obligations recognized in the multilateral air services agreements to which they are parties and all the amendments that apply to both parties, in particular the 1944 Convention on International Civil Aviation, which was signed in Chicago on December 7, 1944, and the 1944 International Air Traffic Agreement. As a result, the parties will conclude as soon as possible all necessary civil aviation agreements and arrangements and therefore strive to create an international air corridor between their two states, in accordance with international law. They also conclude and conclude the necessary visa and consular agreements and arrangements to facilitate the movement of citizens of both states. In the months leading up to the agreement, Israel had secretly collaborated with the United Arab Emirates to combat the COVID 19 pandemic. European media reported that Mossad was discreetly sourcing health supplies from the Gulf states.   Benjamin Netanyahu, Prime Minister of Israel, announced at the end of June 2020 that the two countries were cooperating in the fight against coronavirus and that the mossad leader, Yossi Cohen, had visited the VaE several times.
