Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has hinted that “many, many more countries” might be establishing diplomatic ties with Israel without getting into any specifics.

“You can see the Arab countries, some have already come forward, others are coming forward. I think we should continue that policy and we’re going to see many, many more countries, a lot more than people expect and perhaps a lot sooner than people expect to do the same”, Netanyahu said┬áduring a meeting with the US envoy to the UN┬áKelly Craft.

Netanyahu qlwo thanked the Trump administration for “defending the truth and defending the State of Israel” at the international body.

Last week Israeli Regional Cooperation Minister Ofir Akunis said that at least two countries are considered to be close to setting up official relations with Israel but refused to name which ones exactly.

After decades without progress in achieving recognition of the Jewish state, Israel has managed to establish diplomatic ties with the UAE, Bahrain, Sudan, and Morroco over the last four months with assistance from the heroic efforts of President Donald Trump.
