Netanyahu welcomes first-ever UAE ambassador to Israel


Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu welcomed the first Ambassador of the United Arab Emirates to Israel, Muhammad Mahmoud Al Khaja, on Tuesday, a day after his arrival for a four-day visit.

“We are changing the Middle East; we are changing the world,” Netanyahu told Al Khaja.

The two discussed potential joint regional and bilateral projects for Israel and the UAE in a wide range of areas, the Prime Minister’s Office said.

The PMO characterized the meeting as “warm and friendly,” and said National Security Adviser Meir Ben-Shabbat participated as well.

Al Khaja also visited Yad Vashem on Tuesday.

The ambassador is expected to look for a site for the embassy and his residence in the coming days. He will plans to come back to Israel full-time at the end of the month.
