UAE delays Israel embassy opening due to lockdown

The United Arab Emirates has delayed the opening of its embassy in Israel due to the ongoing lockdown and high infections, according to the official WAM new agency.

“The opening of the embassy has been affected at the present time by current restrictions on movement in the State of Israel to limit the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic,” WAM reports.

“We hope that the situation will improve and that the embassy opening process will be completed soon, with the continuation of Emirati and Israeli efforts to lead the fastest vaccination campaigns in the world.”
