Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said today, Tuesday, that 4 countries will sign peace agreements with Israel, but he did not mention the names of these countries.

Netanyahu added to the Israeli newspaper, Yedioth Ahronoth, referring to the normalisation agreements with the UAE, Bahrain, Sudan and Morocco, "I have brought peace in exchange for peace," referring to his rejection of rejection of "Land For Peace" principle advocated by the Arab Peace Initiative, which was adopted by the Arab countries in 2002.

Netanyahu said he could still manage the government, despite the court looking into files against him on corruption charges. "I can manage the country's affairs during the court," he said.

Netanyahu's statement came on the eve of the Israeli general elections, to be held next week.
