President Isaac Herzog meets with UAE’s President Mohammed Bin Zayed, seeking to reassure him that “the Abraham Accords are a national consensus in Israel on all sides of the political spectrum.”

“Now we have to reach cruising altitude,” he continues, “that is, to upgrade ties between us even more, to strengthen them and to bring more nations into the Abraham Accords.”

The two meet in Bin Zayed’s private home in Abu Dhabi.

Bin Zayed tells Herzog “that we built a very strong bridge between the countries that we both can be proud of.”

He also tells his Israeli counterpart that the UAE is Herzog’s “second home.”

Herzog now heads to the airport to head back to his first home, Israel.
