Israel’s new Foreign Minister, Yair Lapid, arrived in the United Arab Emirates, UAE, on Tuesday, making it the first Israeli top diplomat to visit the Gulf state.

During his two-day visit, Lapid would meet with his Emirati counterpart, Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan.

He would also inaugurate the Israeli embassy in Abu Dhabi and a general consulate in Dubai.

Israel had signed agreements establishing diplomatic ties with the UAE and Bahrain in September following mediation by the United States.

This could lead to crossing decades-old line drawn by most Arab states who had refused relations with Israel until the conflict with the Palestinians had been resolved.
