Bahraini ministers are set to make the first official visit to Israel for a tripartite meeting
Press TV – From the tiny island to Israel, two Bahraini ministers are to pay the first official visit to attend a tripartite meeting with Israeli and US officials.
As Israel’s Walla news site reported, Bahrain’s Foreign Minister Abdullatif bin Rashid Alzayani and Minister of Industry, Commerce and Tourism Zayed Bin Rashid Al Zayani will pay a visit to Israel later this week.
They are expected to attend a meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and his US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in Jerusalem al-Quds on Wednesday.
The parties are going to sign an aviation agreement for direct flights between the two sides- Tel Aviv and Manama – thus, to discuss opening and exchanging ambassadors, according to Israeli sources.
On September 11, US President Donald Trump announced that Bahrain was following the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in normalizing ties with Israel. And four days later, agreements were signed between with both Emirati and Bahrain’s Foreign Ministers.
As for the Palestinians, they have condemned the agreements as a betrayal of their cause against the Israeli occupation.
On the other hand, there is the Bahrain’s opposition group – Al Wefaq National Ismlaic Society – whom has denounced the agreement as an “ultimate betrayal of Islam and Arabs and a departure from the Islamic, Arab and national consensus,” as Press TV report read.
