Israeli Prime Minister in Bahrain in First Visit

Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett arrived in Bahrain’s capital Manama on Monday in the highest-level visit since relations were normalized under a 2020 U.S.-sponsored deal.

Bennett is to meet Bahrain’s Crown Prince and Prime Minister Salman bin Hamad al-Khalifa, his office said.

“The leaders will discuss additional ways to strengthen bilateral ties … especially the advancement of diplomatic and economic issues, with an emphasis on technology and innovation,” it said in a statement.

Speaking to reporters before take-off, Bennett said he hoped the visit would be a “message of goodwill… and a shared stance against common threats”.
