British Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab Thursday welcomed the decision by the Palestinian Authorities and the Israeli government to resume coordination based on bilateral agreements.

Palestinian officials announced earlier this week the resumption of ties with Israel after a monthslong pause following the Middle East peace plan unveiled by Washington earlier this year.

In February, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said that his country would cut all ties with the United States and Israel, including those relating to security, after rejecting a Middle East peace plan presented by US President Donald Trump.

Israel and the Palestinian Authority’s security forces have long cooperated in policing areas of the occupied West Bank that are under Palestinian control. The PA also has intelligence cooperation agreements with the CIA, which continued even after the Palestinians began boycotting the Trump administration’s peace efforts in 2017.
