President trump announcing what he called an historic deal to establish diplomatic relations between Israel and the united Arab Emirates. Senior foreign correspondent Ian Pannell is in London with the details of this agreement. Good morning, Ian. Reporter: Yeah, good morning, Amy. That's right. This is an important deal and if signed makes the uae one of only three Arab countries to have full ties with Israel. In the coming weeks we will see a bunch of agreements on direct flights, security and the opening of embassies in exchange, Israel's agreed not to annex parts of Palestinian land in the west bank that are currently occupied. The president we said calling it an historic peace agreement but the leader of the emirates calling it a road map. Reporter: Yeah, that's right, also the Israeli leader saying the annexation is only paused. Cooperation increasing because these old enemies are united by a common foe in Iran and the hope it will lead to similar moves by other nations and while this is a enough needed and important foreign policy success for the president ahead of the election, it's still a long way short of his promise of middle East peace plan. The Palestinians have reacted with fury and there's also a suggestion that they're going to withdraw their ambassador from the region. Amy. All right, Ian Pannell with the latest on that, thank you.
