Prime Minister Naftali Bennett held a meeting last night with the foreign minister of Bahrain, Abdullatif bin Rashid Al Zayani, and UAE Minister of State in the Foreign Ministry Khalifa Shaheen Almarar, on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in New York.
The three noted the first anniversary of the signing of the Abraham Accords that fell this month. Prime Minister Bennett said that Israel aspires to tighten and strengthen its ties with the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain in all fields, and added that he hopes that that additional countries in the region will join the circle of peace.
Bennett said," "I am so very happy to meet you. I felt it's important that we meet to signal the year of the Abraham Accords, which from our perspective is very meaningful. First of all, I want to tell you that I met the King of Jordan and the President of Egypt and they are of course delighted with the ensuing relationship between our countries, and I want to assure you of continuity. We are stable and we believe in this relationship, and we want to expand it as much as possible."
