The American Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said other Arab countries will also normalize ties with Israel, Al-Arabiya TV reported.

Washington will continue working for peace in the region, while keeping the threat of Iran in mind, he added.

The US was looking to create a peace deal between Palestine and Israel, but the Palestinian leadership refused to participate, Pompeo said.
