The White House has been urging Arab states to commit to non-belligerence pacts with Israel, part of the Trump administration's ongoing effort to bring stability to the volatile Middle East region.

Deputy National Security Adviser Victoria Coates reportedly met with ambassadors from Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates, Oman, and Morocco in Washington, D.C., last week and urged the countries to consider adopting the pacts. The ambassadors said they would inform their respective countries of the proposed plans.

🔦 Israel is currently in a state of interim governance and may be headed for another election, making the implementation of any agreements difficult.
