It will mark the first public meeting between an Israeli prime minister and an Emirati minister.
Israel and the United Arab Emirates are scheduled to formally sign the Aug. 13 normalization agreement—named the “Abraham Accord”—at the White House on Sept. 15, a senior White House official told JNS.
U.S. President Donald Trump will attend the ceremony. A senior Israeli delegation will be led by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, while a senior Emirati delegation will be headed by Foreign Minister Abdullah bin Zayed.
It will mark the first public meeting between an Israeli prime minister and an Emirati minister, and the first White House peace-accord signing since the one between Israel and Jordan in 1994.
“I am proud to leave for Washington next week at the invitation of President Trump and to participate in the historic ceremony at the White House on the establishment of a peace agreement between Israel and the United Arab Emirates,” said Netanyahu in a statement released by his office.
