Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed al-Nahyan and Israeli President Reuven Rivlin exchanged invitations on Tuesday to visit their respective countries, the UAE state news agency WAM reported, the latest step in Israel‘s thaw with Arab states.

In his letter, “the Israeli president expressed his deep thanks for the efforts made to sign the historic peace treaty, which launched a new phase of relations between the two countries,” WAM said.

For his part, the crown prince said an agreement on ties with Israel would “contribute to the stability of the entire region,” WAM reported.

The news agency did not say when the visits would take place.
