Israel’s Benjamin Netanyahu to visit UAE, first foreign trip since taking office

Israel’s new prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, will travel to the United Arab Emirates later this month in what will be his first foreign trip during his recent tenure as head of the Israeli government. i24 News Learned.

UAE President Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan congratulated Netanyahu on Saturday on his sixth term as prime minister of the country. Israel’s 37th government began transferring power from ministerial positions on Sunday.

During Netanyahu’s previous term, he participated in the September 2020 White House signing of the US-brokered Abraham Accords, which normalized Israel’s relations with the UAE and Bahrain.
