Israel’s acting consul general in New York hosts an Iftar dinner for his counterparts from the United Arab Emirates, Morocco and Kosovo, all of whose countries have normalized relations with the Jewish state in the past year.

UAE Consul General Abdalla Shaheen, Morocco Consul General Abdelkader Jamoussi and Kosovo Consul General Frymëzim Isufaj joined Israeli Consul General Israel Nitzan for the dinner, along with several other prominent community leaders.

“This year’s event is even more historic and joyous because of our distinguished guests,” says Nitzan. “Thanks to the Abraham Accords forged by our nations and with the help of the United States, we are now officially at peace. More importantly, our friendship is opening new opportunities in not only the Middle East, but in New York as well.”
