i24 News – Israel’s President Isaac Herzog is set to undertake a historic trip to Bahrain, two years after the normalization of ties between the two countries.

The official announced the upcoming visit – which would be a first of its kind by an Israeli official – at a Thursday reception in honor of the foreign minister of the United Arab Emirates, Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, in the Israeli city of Herzliya.

“I shall visit Bahrain in the coming months as the guest of His Majesty King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa, in order to continue the joint exploration of new ways to enhance our nations’ cooperation, for the sake of peace, prosperity, and success of the entire region,” Herzog said.

“The world looks at the Abraham Accords with awe and respect and says there’s a new Middle East in many ways, being created and moving forward,” he added.
