"After 49 years, Israel and the United Arab Emirates will fully normalize their diplomatic relations. They will exchange embassies and ambassadors and begin cooperation across the board and on a broad range of areas including tourism, education, healthcare, trade and security," Trump said from the Oval Office.

"Now that the ice has been broken, I expect more Arab and Muslim countries will follow the United Arab Emirates' lead," he added. "So you will probably see others of these."
