Yitzhak Herzog is planning to make the first ever visit to Bahrain.

Israeli President Yitzhak Herzog will visit the Kingdom of Bahrain in early December this year. This was reported on Thursday by the newspaper "Yediot Ahronot".

According to her, the Duke will become the first head of state of Israel in history to visit Bahrain at the invitation of the king.

During the visit, the Duke is scheduled to meet with the King of Bahrain Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa, as well as with a number of high-ranking officials of the kingdom and members of the local Jewish community.

After visiting Bahrain, the President of Israel will go to The United Arab Emirates (UAE), where he will hold talks with the leader of the Emirates, Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan.

In September 2020 in In Washington, the Israeli side, with the mediation of the United States, signed documents on the normalization of relations with the UAE and Bahrain. In the West, the trilateral deal was called the "Abraham Agreement". Subsequently, Sudan and Morocco announced the normalization of relations with Israel.

Before the conclusion of peace with the UAE and Bahrain, the Jewish state from Arab countries had diplomatic relations only with Egypt and Jordan.
