MOSCOW, January 26 (Itar-Tass) – Israel’s just-held parliamentary elections will have no effect on Israel’s relations with the Arab states, the President of the Middle East Institute, Yevgeny Satanovsky, told Itar-Tass in an interview on Friday.
“These relations are rather stable - Israel has no relations with the Arab states that might be discussed as some sort of relations. They ended with the ‘Arab Spring’,” Satanovsky said.
“From the juridical point of view the Camp David agreements have not been severed yet, but they will be severed. The Egyptian leadership states that quite clearly,” the analyst said. “Jordan is shaking. If the Syrian regime falls, there will be no Jordan, and there will be no relations with Jordan, either. Creation of a new Caliphate according to Qatar’s and Saudi Arabia’s templates leaves no chance of saying that Israel’s relations with the Arab world will be something else but a prolonged and harsh confrontation for any predictable period of time.”
“Speculating about some shifts in Palestinian-Israeli relations would be very much like asking what progress has been achieved in implementing the Ribbentrop-Molotov Pact the USSR and the Third Reich signed at a certain point. The answer is clear.”
As for Russian-Israeli cooperation, Satanovsky said, ‘these relations keep expanding, and their economic and political components are on the ascent.” However, the analyst believes that the two countries have major disagreements, for instance, those over relations with Iran.
