President Trump will host a signing ceremony for a historic peace agreement between Israel and the United Arab Emirates on September 15.

The ceremony will be held at the White House, formalizing the 18 months of peace talks between the two nations that led to the announcement of the deal last month and the end of UAE's boycott on Israel, allowing for formal trade between the countries.

On Tuesday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced that he would be attending the event.

"I am proud to embark next week to Washington, at the invitation of President Trump, to take part in the this historic ceremony at the White House for the foundation of the peace treaty between Israel and the United (Arab) Emirates," Netanyahu said.

Emirati Foreign Minister Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the brother of Abu Dhabi's crown prince, will also attend.

? Trump was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize this week for his work in brokering the groundbreaking deal between the two nations.
