US Treasury Secretary Stephen Mnuchin and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s national security advisor, Meir Ben Shabat, are leading the two delegations that left Ben Gurion Airport in Tel Aviv.
Flight “El-973”, a reference to Bahrain’s international calling code, will fly through Saudi airspace on its way to Manama, where senior officials from the three countries will hold talks.
An Israeli diplomatic official said that an official ceremony would be held to mark the signing of agreements and the normalization of diplomatic relations between the two countries.
Last September, a delegation of Israeli officials arrived in Manama to discuss cooperation between Israel and Bahrain after the signing of the agreement to normalize relations in Washington.
As part of the normalization of relations, the UAE and Bahrain will establish two embassies and exchange ambassadors with Israel, and an Israeli official said that the Israeli embassy in Bahrain is expected to open within months.
Like the UAE, Bahrain is expected to open its embassy at a later time in Tel Aviv, where most of the foreign embassies are located.
Bahraini and Israeli officials have held several talks since the two sides announced their intention to establish full relations, and in the meantime, Israel and the UAE have already signed a number of commercial, banking and government agreements.
Bahrain and the UAE formally signed the normalization agreement with Israel at a ceremony at the White House on September 15.
