Egyptian President Abdul Fattah al-Sisi welcomed on Friday the peace agreement reached between Bahrain and Israel.

In a tweet, he hailed the "important step" of Israel and Bahrain establishing diplomatic relations.

The agreement, announced on Friday, would help establish "stability and peace in the Middle East, in a way that achieves a just and permanent settlement of the Palestinian issue," he added.

Bahrain joined the United Arab Emirates in striking an agreement to normalize relations with Israel, President Donald Trump said on Friday.

Trump tweeted out the news after he spoke by phone to both Bahrain’s King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the White House said.

A joint statement issued by the three leaders said they had agreed on "establishment of full diplomatic relations between Israel and the Kingdom of Bahrain."
