Israel signs its first cooperation agreements with the United Arab Emirates in the field of agriculture.

Agriculture Minister Oded Forer and UAE Minister of Food and Water Security Mariam Al-Muhairi sign the deal in Tel Aviv to cooperate on research and innovation, including the development of strains of produce suitable for growing in desert conditions, as well as other advancements in the fields of water management and irrigation.

“The United Arab Emirates and Israel share many challenges when it comes to food security, and we are cooperating to find innovative and feasible solutions to these challenges,” says Al-Muhairi.

The UAE is slated to officially open its embassy in Tel Aviv tomorrow morning in the presence of its Ambassador to Israel Mohamed Al Khaja and President Isaac Herzog.
