Isaac Herzog arrives in Bahrain

Manama, The Gulf Observer: The President of Israel, Isaac Herzog, and his accompanying delegation arrived Bahrain today, on an official visit to the Kingdom of Bahrain.

During the visit, His Majesty King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa will hold talks with President Herzog on strengthening bilateral cooperation, as well as regional and international issues of mutual interest.

The trip is the first by an Israeli president to the island kingdom, and will be followed by a visit to the United Arab Emirates — both of which established diplomatic relations with Israel in 2020.

Ahead of his departure, Isaac Herzog said the trip to Bahrain is “predominantly a message of peace in the region.”

Upon his arrival at the Bahrain International Airport, the Israeli President was welcomed by the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Head of the Mission of Honour, Dr. Abdullatif bin Rashid Al-Zayani, the Governor of Muharraq Governorate, Salman bin Isa bin Hindi Al-Mannai, the Ambassador of the Kingdom of Bahrain to the State of Israel, Khalid bin Yusuf Al-Jalahma and the Ambassador of the State of Israel to the Kingdom of Bahrain, Eitan Naeh, and a number of senior officials.
