Naftali Bennett’s office says he will meet Crown Prince Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed al-Nahyan on the first official visit by an Israeli prime minister to the UAE.
Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett will travel to the United Arab Emirates to meet the Gulf state’s de facto ruler, in the first-ever visit to the UAE by an Israeli prime minister.
Bennett will depart for the high-level public visit on Sunday and will meet Crown Prince Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed al-Nahyan before returning to Israel, Bennett’s office said.
There was no immediate confirmation from the UAE.
The two countries formalised relations last year as part of a US-brokered agreement known as the Abraham Accords. The agreement has led to a raft of deals ranging from tourism and business to cutting-edge technology.
