Foreign Minister Eli Cohen is taking off for Bahrain, his first visit to an Abraham Accords partner since assuming his post in December.

He is taking Likud MK Amit Halevy with him, as well as ministry Director General Ronen Levy. Ambassador to Bahrain Eitan Na’eh is also along for the ride.

Cohen will meet his Bahraini counterpart Abdullatif Al Zayani, and will open the Israeli embassy in Manama.

A potential meeting with King Hamad Al Khalifa has yet to be finalized.
