LONDON - Israel’s cabinet approved the peace deal with the United Arab Emirates on Monday and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said he and Abu Dhabi’s crown prince had spoken and agreed to meet soon.
Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed al-Nahyan, the UAE’s de facto leader, tweeted on Monday that he and Netanyahu had discussed strengthening bilateral ties and the prospects for peace in the area.
In an official statement that coincided with an Israeli cabinet vote approving the September 15 agreement with the UAE, Netanyahu said he and Sheikh Mohammed would meet soon, without specifying a date.
“At the weekend, I spoke with my friend, the crown prince … and invited him to visit Israel,” Netanyahu said. “He invited me to visit Abu Dhabi. But first, we will see a UAE delegation here and another one of our delegations will go there.”
A source familiar with plans for the delegations’ visits said Israeli representatives accompanied by US officials will fly to Bahrain on October 18 and travel on to the UAE the next day before returning to Israel with a UAE team on October 20.
Commenting on his conversation with Sheikh Mohammed, Netanyahu said: “We spoke about cooperation that we are promoting in investment, tourism, energy, technology and other spheres.”
While the normalisation accord has already inspired commercial deal-making with the Gulf’s trade, finance, tourism and travel hub, Israeli officials have objected to the UAE’s potential purchase of US made F-35 stealth fighter jets in a separate side deal.
Israel is the only Middle East country flying the advanced warplane and has voiced concern its supply to other nations in the region could jeopardise its military edge.
Israel has also said it would oppose any sale of the plane to Qatar, whose Iran links trouble Israel and Arab Gulf states, after a Reuters report that Doha had submitted a formal request to Washington to buy the Lockheed Martin Corp. stealth jet.
Israeli cabinet approval of the accord with the UAE opened the way for Israel’s parliament to ratify it, in a vote likely to be held later this week.
In the UAE, the federal cabinet must still approve the accord, following which the government would issue a decree.
Israel and Bahrain, which signed a “declaration of peace” at the White House ceremony last month, are still discussing details of a full accord.
