UAE Government Delegation Heads To ‘Israel’ For First Official Visit
By Staff, Agencies
An Etihad Airways plane, flight EY8014, carrying Emirati government officials, left the UAE capital Abu Dhabi, headed to Ben-Gurion Airport in the ‘Israeli’-occupied Palestinian territories, according to flight-tracking website FlightRadar24.
Zionist officials said the visit would be restricted to the airport due to coronavirus concerns.
The UAE and Bahrain in September became the first Arab states in a quarter of a century to sign deals to normalize ties with the occupation entity.
The Emirati delegation is led by Economy Minister Abdullah bin Touq al-Mari and Minister of State for Financial Affairs Obaid Humaid al-Tayer, a UAE foreign ministry spokeswoman tweeted.
Relatively, US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin is joining them on the trip, after having accompanied an ‘Israeli’ delegation to Bahrain on Sunday for a signing ceremony to formalize ties.
The Tel Aviv regime and the UAE have already signed several commercial deals since mid-August, when they first announced they would establish full relations.
Zionist officials said the two sides were expected to sign a mutual visa-exemption agreement – the occupation entity’s first with an Arab country.
