President Trump’s recent Middle East peace agreements showed that former Secretary of State John Kerry was wrong to predict that Israel would be more isolated without the Iran nuclear deal, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Monday.
“I remember the story that Carey said that if the nuclear deal was abandoned that Israel would be isolated when in fact the opposite had happened now,” he said on “The Story”.
“They have joined hands and now they have many more partners across the region – each of those countries, those Gulf states, recognize that the shared threat from the Islamic Republic of Iran is very real and they are now working together, building out. There are security and economic relations and the real relationship between these countries, “he said.
“It would be really stable for the Middle East to see what happens tomorrow in Washington, DC.”

In 2015, Carey said: “I fear what might happen if Congress reverses this, our friends in Israel may actually be more isolated and more to blame.”
The leaders of Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates are expected to join on Tuesday to sign agreements that normalize relations between the nations of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, as Pompeo remarks.
The Secretary of State also rejected the comments of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-California, who attempted to underscore the importance of peace deals President Trump’s administration helped negotiate between Israel and other Middle Eastern countries.

Pompeo told “The Story” anchor Martha McClum that the deal was “notable”. “So cynical,” he said in response to a clip of Pelosi. “This is a remarkable achievement. The administration and President Trump set the conditions for peace in the Middle East. The real progress is that tomorrow, we will sign agreements that normalize the relationship between Israelis, Bahrainis, all of the Emirates in Washington.” Countries. It’s a great day. “
