A Hebrew newspaper revealed the main player in reaching the normalization agreement between Israel and the UAE.
The Hebrew newspaper "Israel Hayom", on Thursday 10 September 2020, quoted the former British Prime Minister, Tony Blair, how he contributed greatly to the achievement of the Israeli-Emirati peace agreement.
Blair confirmed in an interview with the newspaper that he was a mediator between Israel and the UAE, as he traveled between London, Abu Dhabi and Nicosia to hold a series of secret meetings with lawyer Yitzhak Mulkhu, the former special envoy of Benjamin Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister, and a minister in the UAE government (without being named).
The former British Prime Minister indicated that the secret meetings were held between the years 2015 and 2018 until the forced resignation of the Israeli lawyer Moloko, who was accused of corruption in the submarine deal, known as "Case 3000", in which Netanyahu is accused of corruption and abuse of influence.
The agreement between the UAE and Israel was announced at the White House, on August 13, after talks that officials said lasted 18 months. The UAE will become the third Arab country to sign a peace agreement with Israel and establish formal relations between the two countries, after Egypt (in 1979) and Jordan ( 1994).
