Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu defends his trip to Abu Dhabi next week, which comes as Israel’s airport has been shut to prevent the import of coronavirus mutations.
The visit, Netanyahu’s first to the Gulf since the normalization deals were signed, has been postponed several times. It has “great security, national and international importance,” he says of the trip.
“But I have reduced it, at my request, from three days to three hours,” he says.
Netanyahu confirms he’ll visit Abu Dhabi, and says he may add a whirlwind stop in Bahrain.
“We have a lot to talk about with them,” he says.
