Bilateral meetings between the foreign ministers are taking place at the Kedma hotel in Sde Boker.

Foreign Minister Yair Lapid is meeting with his Moroccan counterpart Nasser Bourita.

Also present at the summit and holding meetings are US Secretary of State Antony Blinken, the UAE’s Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Bahrain’s Abdullatif bin Rashid Al-Zayani and Egypt’s Sameh Shoukry.

Around noon, the foreign ministers are slated to give a joint statement to press at the hotel, then each diplomat will head home.

It is unclear if the planned visit to David Ben-Gurion’s grave will occur at 11:30 a.m., due to timing issues. Israel’s first prime minister lived at Sde Boker, and he and his wife, Paula, are buried there.
