Alon Ushpiz, the director general of the Foreign Ministry, meets Crown Prince and Prime Minister Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa in Manama.

“It was an honor and a pleasure to pay a visit to HRH the CP and PM Salman bin Hamad,” tweets Ushpiz. “Fortunate to have the opportunity to discuss matters that will decide not only the future of Israel-Bahrain relations but will also contribute in a major way to regional prosperity and stability.”

Ushpiz is leading an Israeli delegation that will take part in the second bilateral steering committee meeting between the two countries. The first meeting took place in Israel last August.

Israel and Bahrain established full diplomatic relations in September 2020 as part of the US-brokered Abraham Accords.
