Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) plan to sign a normalization agreement at the White House during a ceremony Sept. 15, American officials said Tuesday, Anadolu Agency reports.  

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Emirati Foreign Minister Mohammed bin Zayad will likely lead delegations from both nations, according to anonymous White House officials who spoke to The Associated Press.

US President Donald Trump will host the event either on the South Lawn, Rose Garden or inside, depending on weather conditions, said the officials.

Israeli Channel 12 News reported Monday that arrangements were underway between the UAE, US and Israel to organize a grand signing ceremony in Washington on Sept. 22 in the presence of Trump, Netanyahu and UAE Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed.

According to AlJazeera, Netanyahu confirmed his participation on Twitter, with the Israeli leader saying he is "proud to leave for Washington next week at the invitation of President Trump and to participate in the historic ceremony at the White House on the establishment of a peace agreement between Israel and the United Arab Emirates".

The officials, who were not authorised to discuss the matter publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity, said the ceremony would either be on the South Lawn, the Rose Garden or inside depending on the weather.

It should be noted that on August 13, the UAE and Israel signed the peace agreement of the establishment of diplomatic relations between two states, including embassies in each other's territory. 

Palestinian authority and other resistance forces slammed agreement, saying it does not serve in favor of territorial integrity of Palestine and disrespect the rights of Palestinian people.
