MANAMA — Foreign Minister Yair Lapid meets with Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, the crown prince of Bahrain, at his palace in Manama.

“Thank you for the opportunity to be here today, and to take this step together in building our relations,” says Lapid, “in a model of coexistence and cooperation between cultures and between faiths.”

The exchange between the pair is thought to be the first public meeting the crown prince has ever held with an Israeli official. Lapid is in the Bahraini capital to inaugurate the Israeli embassy there later today.
