US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo expressed "confidence" that other Arab countries will sign peace deals with Israel.

In an interview with Al Arabiya published Sunday, Pompeo said “I am very confident that other nations will join what the Emiratis, Bahrainis, and Sudanese have done and recognize the rightful place of Israel among nations,” he said. “They’ll do it because it’s the right thing to do for their nation, because of increased prosperity and security for their country.”

“Every country that wants a better situation for their own people will come along to recognize Israel.”

He also noted that US policy toward Iran has been consistent throughout the period of the Trump administration, and it will not change as long as Trump is in office.

“We’ve delivered on every commitment we’ve made to countries in the Middle East, we’ve protected Americans, we’ve built up partners who want to partner with the United States of America,” Pompeo said, adding, “there’s no reason that’ll change while President Trump is in office.”
