Israel Opens Embassy in UAE
Israel officially opened its embassy in the United Arab Emirates on Sunday.
Ambassador Eitan Na’eh, who will serve as charge d’affaires until a permanent ambassador is appointed, arrived in Abu Dhabi, the UAE’s capital to open the embassy.
The Foreign Ministry said the new embassy “will advance the range of relations between the countries in all areas and expand ties with the Emirati government, economic bodies and the private sector, academia, media and more.”
The embassy is in a temporary structure until a permanent one is found.
Israel and the UAE announced that they are making peace and normalizing ties on August 15 of last year, launching the Abraham Accords. Three more Arab countries – Bahrain, Sudan, and Morocco – joined the accords in the subsequent months. (JPost / VFI News)
