Although under censorship restrictions, Israel Hayom is not at liberty to name the Asian country, or the people involved—due to potential national security and diplomatic sensitivities—we can report that the adviser headed a delegation of senior officials for meetings in Tel Aviv some two weeks ago.

The talks between the two sides come on the heels of the normalization deals struck between Israel and several Arab states through the active mediation of the administration of US President Donald Trump. The deals, known collectively as the Abraham Accords, have been announced over the course of the past several months, with the United Arab Emirates being the first, followed by Bahrain and Sudan.

Just last week, Morocco publicly announced the establishment of full diplomatic relations with the Jewish state, and a few days ago, Bhutan did, as well.

Saudi Arabia, as the de facto leader of the Sunni-Arab bloc in the region, has been reportedly active behind the scenes to lay the groundwork for US-led normalization effort and it has recently granted overflight rights to Israeli airliners.
