An informed source in the administration of US President Joe Biden reported that the State Department avoids referring to the normalization agreements signed by the UAE and Bahrain with Israel with the term “Abraham Agreement”.
The name has been erased from a wide range of official communications for the ministry, as the new US administration is pressing to call them “normalization agreements.”
The Washington Free Beacon website reviewed two internal State Department emails detailing to employees that the agreement would not be referred to as “Abraham Accords” but rather as “normalization agreements”, and gave no reason for this trend.
The source added that the ministry also removed the term from talking points, documents, data and official communications, adding that senior ministry officials were very “cautious” about explaining the policy decision and sought to keep it quiet.
And former US President Donald Trump announced last August that the agreement to normalize relations between Israel and the UAE was a “historic peace agreement,” and said that this agreement would be known as the “Abraham Agreement,” noting that he wanted to name the agreement, “but the press will not accept it.” that”.
