Israel to Host Top Diplomats of US, UAE, Bahrain, and Morocco

Israel Foreign Minister Yair Lapid will host a two-day meeting with his counterparts from US, United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Morocco for a “historic diplomatic summit” on Sunday and Monday, his office said on Friday.

A series of diplomatic meetings would be attended by US Secretary of State Antony Blinken and his counterparts, Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan from the UAE, Abdullatif bin Rashid Al- Zayani from Bahrain and Nasser Bourita from Morocco,” Israel Foreign Ministry said without giving further details.

The announcement came one day after Blinken said he will visit Israel and the West Bank.

The UAE forged a diplomatic deal with Israel in 2020 under a US-brokered deal known as Abraham Accords, where later Bahrain and Morocco also followed suit.

The meeting is also coming at a time when US and Iran is close to reach an agreement to restore the 2015 nuclear deal, in which Iran will bound to reduce its nuclear program in return for removal of sanctions.
