Trump's ex-Middle East envoy celebrates daughter's engagement in Dubai
Greenblatt's daughter, Anna Greenblatt, said yes to a surprise proposal from her boyfriend in Dubai where she was travelling with her father.
Greenblatt, who played a key role in drafting Trump's controversial peace plan for the Middle East, posted a picture celebrating the engagement on Twitter Thursday morning.
"What an incredible, magical evening!" Greenblatt tweeted, "Four years ago I NEVER would have even imagined that I'd be celebrating my daughter's engagement in the desert in Dubai with a delicious kosher spread."
"The dawn of a new era," he added. "Thank you to all those who made peace happen! The benefits of peace!"
Greenblatt was a co-author of Trump's highly controversial Middle East peace plan, known as the 'Deal of Century'. He resigned a few months before it was announced.
A separate tweet shows the newly engaged couple standing in the Dubai desert at sunset.
"Thrilled to announce the engagement of my daughter Anna to Eric. Eric flew to Dubai to surprise Anna (she was with me on a trip) and proposed to her in beautiful #Dubai," Greenblatt tweeted.
The UAE is only the third Arab country to normalise ties with Israel following Egypt in 1979 and Jordan in 1994. Its move was quickly followed by Bahrain and Sudan.
The agreements, which have been roundly condemned by the Palestinians, break with years of Arab League policy on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
