The Zionist entity is in talks to normalize relations with Comoros, a Muslim-majority island country off the coast of eastern Africa, Israeli media reported, citing a senior diplomatic source.
The Jerusalem Post reported that the United States reportedly brought the two sides together for discussions on the Arab League member establishing diplomatic ties with the occupation regime and the talks have continued on a bilateral basis.
Comoros is a volcanic archipelago in the Indian Ocean between Madagascar and the mainland countries of Mozambique and Tanzania. It is the only Arab country entirely in the Southern Hemisphere.
The administration of US President Joe Biden has expressed interest in building on the so-called Abraham Accords agreed to last year between the Zionist entity and the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain, with the later additions of Morocco and Sudan.
Israel’s Minister of Regional Cooperation Issawi Frej claimed in an interview with Emirati website Erem News published Monday that Qatar, Tunisia, Oman and Malaysia may join the Abraham Accords.
However, last week Qatari Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Mohammed bin Abdulrahman bin Jassim Al Thani ruled out an Abraham Accords-style normalization of relations with the Zionist entity as long as “there is no prospect of ending the occupation.”
