The ambassadors of the UAE and Israel met for the first time in Abu Dhabi on Tuesday after both countries normalised ties in September last year.

UAE’s ambassador to Israel, Mohammed al Khaja tweeted that he met Eitan Na’eh, who took charge as Israel’s ambassador to the emirates, at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation in Abu Dhabi.

“During the meeting, we discussed bilateral relations and means of strengthening and developing them in all fields in light of the Abraham Accords,” tweeted Khaja.

Both Israel and the UAE established full diplomatic relations after signing the US-brokered Abraham Accords last year. In January this year, Israel announced that it has opened an embassy in the United Arab Emirates to advance relations between the two countries on all levels.
