A delegation of senior Emirati officials visited Israel on Tuesday for the first time since the two countries agreed to normalize relations, where they signed a slew of bilateral #agreements meant to solidify their new ties.
U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin accompanied Emirati Finance Minister Obaid Humaid al-Tayer and other senior officials from the United Arab Emirates and the U.S. on the Etihad Airways flight from Abu Dhabi to Tel Aviv.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu greeted al-Tayer and Mnuchin at #Israel’s Ben-Gurion international airport before signing of a series of bilateral agreements between Israel and the #UAE, including civil aviation, visa exemption and science and innovation deals.
Israel and the UAE announced in August they had agreed to normalize ties under a U.S.-brokered deal, and signed accords on the White House lawn in September.
