According to the daily, the unnamed Bahraini official said: “There are growing fears among moderate Arab countries that Trump might be defeated, and the Democratic candidate, Joe Biden, will adopt a different policy in the Middle East.”

The Bahraini official reiterated to the newspaper: “Biden’s victory could push the countries that are in contact to normalize relations with Israel to take a step backward.”

During the last two months, three Arab countries – the UAE, Bahrain, and Sudan – announced the normalization of ties with Israel and signed deals under the US president’s patronage.

Last week, Trump said five more Arab countries are ready to normalize relations with Israel. “It will be after the American elections,” he said, adding: “We are doing a lot of work now, and I am involved in all of those deals.”
