Israel is working on an arrangement that will allow vaccinated Emiratis to visit Israel, says Foreign Minister Gabi Ashkenazi.

The UAE, which signed the Abraham Accords with Israel last year, has used primarily the Chinese Sinopharm vaccination for its public, which Israel’s Health Ministry does not trust.

“We are trying to create a test,” he says, that will address the concerns of the Health Ministry while taking into account the professionalism with which the UAE authorities have handled the COVID-19 pandemic.
