Israel and Bahrain to formalise diplomatic ties

JERUSALEM ( (HRNW)) – Israel and Bahrain will officially establish diplomatic relations Sunday at a ceremony in Manama, an Israeli official said, after the two states reached a US-brokered normalisation deal last month.

An Israeli delegation led by National Security Council chief Meir Ben Sabbat took off from Tel Aviv for a one-day trip to Manama that will see Israel and Bahrain formalise the agreement they signed at the White House on September 15.

They will ink a “joint communique (that) is the establishment of full diplomatic relations,” an Israel official in Manama told reporters.

After a ceremony scheduled for Sunday evening, Israel and Bahrain will be free to open embassies in each other’s countries, the official said.
