Israel’s Knesset has officially approved the agreement to establish formal relations with the United Arab Emirates.
The U.S.-brokered deal known as the “Abraham Accords” was signed between the Middle East countries in a ceremony at the White House on 15 September.
80 Israeli lawmakers voted in favor of the deal, with 13 opposed.
The parliamentary ratification follows unanimous approval by the cabinet on Monday.
Israel and Bahrain, which signed a “declaration of peace” at the White House ceremony last month, are still discussing details of a full accord.
