BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Mr. HUDSON. Madam Speaker, I rise today to celebrate the historic diplomatic breakthrough that was just accomplished.

Yesterday, President Donald Trump hosted leaders from Israel, UAE, and Bahrain at a ceremony at the White House where the two Arab nations signed an agreement to normalize relations and make peace with Israel.

Make no mistake, this is a historical achievement and I want to congratulate all parties, especially President Trump, on this major accomplishment to bring peace to the region.

To put it lightly, Israel is in a bad neighborhood with many state and non-state actors who wish nothing more than to bring death and destruction to Israel.

However, we know that violence is not the answer and we will only bring peace to the region through careful and deliberate negotiations. Yesterday is an example of that diplomacy and a step in the right direction.

Israel is and always has been our strongest ally in the middle east. The United States must always continue to support Israel by providing necessary resources for their protection, as well as diplomatic support to achieve a lasting peace.

I am proud of the efforts made here and will continue to do everything in my power to support our ally Israel and bring peace to the Middle East.
