As the UAE approves an embassy in Tel Aviv, Israel today inaugurated its own embassy in Abu Dhabi, the Foreign Ministry announces.

Eitan Na’eh heads the mission to the temporary embassy. A permanent embassy site is yet to be decided.

Foreign Minister Gabi Ashkenazi wishes luck to the Israeli mission and praises the UAE government for approving its embassy in Israel, adding that the Jewish state is eagerly awaiting the arrival of Emirati diplomats.

Israel will also inaugurate a consulate in Dubai in the coming days, the statement says.
