International Delegation Visits Israel to Take Abraham Accords to Next Level

(JNS) Israel recently hosted an international delegation from several countries on the third leg of a fact-finding mission that also visited two of the signatories of the Abraham Accords: the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain.

Former Israeli Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon, currently the chairman of World Likud, told JNS that the mission was supposed to have taken place in 2021, “but the coronavirus restrictions meant that it had to be postponed.”

The mission welcomed international dignitaries such as vice presidents, foreign ministers and senior officials from other countries, including Paraguay, Liberia and Argentina, among others, according to Danon. One of the key drivers of the mission, he said, was to showcase regional technology and know-how “founded on coexistence.”

“We wanted to highlight multilateral and multi-layered cooperation—not only between the Emirates and Israel, but also between Manama and Jerusalem,” he said.

He cited Israel’s long-standing peace agreements with both Egypt and Jordan, which have held for 43 and 28 years, respectively, acknowledging that the Jewish State was “proud of our relationships with them.” He added that “we have all seen the development of our ties with the Emirates, but there are more Israelis—businesses and students, for example—who are also going to Bahrain.”
