IslamNews – Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Thursday that the decision by US President Joe Biden’s administration to temporarily suspend its sale of F-35 fighter jets to the United Arab Emirates — a deal clinched after the Gulf state agreed to forge ties with Israel — won’t harm the new diplomatic ties between Jerusalem and Abu Dhabi.

“It won’t affect them, we’ve passed the point of no return,” Netanyahu said in response to a question on the US move, during a brief press conference broadcast on his Facebook page.

The US State Department temporarily froze several military sales Wednesday that were approved by former President Donald Trump’s administration, including F-35 sales to the UAE.
