Biden ‘negotiating transfer of islands from Egypt to S. Arabia’ to normalize Saudi-Israeli relations

Joe Biden’s representatives are holding secret talks with Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Israel aimed at normalizing relations between Saudi and Israel, according to a report.

The establishment of diplomatic relations would be a major coup for the White House, and talks are currently focused on confirming ownership of two contested uninhabited islands in the Red Sea – a major stumbling block for any normalization.

Saudi Arabia has never formally accepted Israel, despite both countries edging closer throughout the decades.
