On Wednesday, special advisor to Jared Kushner and presidential assistant Avi Berkowitz said he feared a negative impact on Israel’s normalization with other countries in the region if Joe Biden wins the presidency in November.
Berkowitz, who also serves as a Special Representative for International Negotiations, is said to be one of the chief architects of the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain normalization agreements with Israel.
During a virtual conference on the Abraham Accords hosted by the Kohelet Forum andIsrael Hayomon Wednesday, Berkowitz said he was worried about a potential shift in American policy towards Iran.
“A different administration would continue to pursue sort of an appeasement-type strategy with Iran,” he said, “and whether its intention is so or not, it is hard to imagine that that would not have negative ramifications on the normalization efforts.”
But Berkowitz made sure to acknowledge Biden’s support for the normalization deals.
