[Ed. – We’ll see who shows up; apparently it’s not clear who’s actually coming on Tuesday. But Hungary’s foreign minister believes he’s the only top EU diplomat scheduled to be there. It’s astonishing. EU members, especially in Western Europe, aren’t just annoyed with Trump. They’re not going to this, or giving it their approval, because it angers the Iranian regime.]
Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto will be the only EU diplomatic leader to attend the signing ceremony on Tuesday in Washington for the Israel-United Arab Emirates peace deal, his spokesman said on Sunday.
“At the invitation of U.S. President Donald Trump, as the only European Union minister, Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto will also attend … the signing ceremony in the White House on Tuesday,” Mate Paczolay told Hungarian news agency MTI.
Under the accord, which Trump helped broker, Israel agreed to suspend its planned annexation of areas of the occupied West Bank. The agreement also firms up opposition to regional power Iran, which the UAE, Israel and the United States view as the main threat in the conflict-riven Middle East.
