The government of the Libyan national agreement condemned the agreement as an “unsurprising betrayal of the United Arab Emirates.”  Sudanese Foreign Ministry spokesman Haidar Sadig was fired for making comments of himself calling the agreement a “courageous and courageous gesture,” while claiming that there were secret contacts between Sudan and Israel.  Sudanese Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok told Pompeo on 25 August that his transitional government had “no mandate” to establish relations with Israel and that this could not be decided until after the election of a democratic government.  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. However, a few hours later, the United Arab Emirates seemed to downplay this situation by revealing that it was simply an agreement between private companies and not at the state level.  India welcomed the agreement and declared that the two nations were its allies and that it had always supported peace and prosperity in West Asia. Foreign Minister Subrahmanyam Jaishankar had previously said that UAE Foreign Minister Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan had called him to discuss the agreement.  Each party recognizes the right of the vessels of the other contracting party to transit innocently in its territorial waters, in accordance with international law. Each contracting party grants normal access to its ports to the ships and cargoes of the other party, as well as to ships and cargo destined for or from the other party. This access is granted on the same conditions that generally apply to ships and cargoes from other countries. The contracting parties may enter into maritime agreements and arrangements.
Prime Minister Netanyahu said there was “no change” in plans to cancel parts of the West Bank if approved by the United States, but added that they would be temporarily suspended.  Prior to the agreement, the plan to annex the West Bank by 30% had already been frozen, with the majority of Israelis and government coalition partners Benny Gantz rejecting the plan.
