Officials from major Muslim country said to visit Israel, discuss normalization

Top officials from a major Muslim country in Asia that has no diplomatic ties with Israel visited the Jewish state two weeks ago to discuss the potential normalization of relations, the pro-Netanyahu Israel Hayom daily reports.

The report says the name of the country is currently barred from publication for diplomatic and security reasons.

It says the delegation, which met Israeli officials in Tel Aviv, was headed by the senior adviser to the country’s leader.

Morocco last week became the fourth Arab nation to establish formal ties with Israel since August, following the UAE, Bahrain and Sudan.

Reports in recent days have speculated that Oman, which praised the Israel-Morocco deal, could be next and that Indonesia, the world’s most populous Muslim nation, is eager to have public ties with Israel.
