Israeli Foreign Minister Eli Cohen arrived in Bahrain on Sunday to hold talks with senior officials, according to what official media reported, in his first visit to one of the Gulf countries that maintains relations with Israel.
Cohen, who is accompanied by a political and commercial delegation, is scheduled to meet with the King of Bahrain during the two-day visit.
This is Cohen's first official visit to one of the countries that signed the "Abraham Accords" in 2020, which was brokered by the United States and witnessed Israel normalizing relations with Bahrain, the Emirates, and Morocco.
Cohen's visit comes less than two weeks before the third anniversary of the agreements in mid-September.
Although stable relations now exist, Bahrain and the UAE have joined other Gulf states in issuing a series of condemnations against Israel this year.
The storming of Al-Aqsa Mosque and the raid by Israeli forces on the city of Nablus and the Jenin camp in the occupied West Bank were among the Israeli steps that angered the Gulf states.
