Newsline: Top diplomat says Israel to host ‘historic’ regional summit next week

Israel will host a “historic” five-way regional conference next week, Foreign Minister Yair Lapid said on Friday, as talks to revive a nuclear deal with Iran remain in limbo. U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken and the foreign ministers of the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Morocco will arrive in Israel for a series of diplomatic meetings on Sunday and Monday, Lapid said in a statement. (https://news.yahoo.com/israel-host-historic-regional-summit-110753343.html) The UAE and Bahrain normalised ties with Israel in 2020 under a U.S.-brokered deal known as the Abraham Accords, creating a new regional dynamic based on mutual concern over Iran. Morocco followed suit last year and the two countries signed a memorandum of understanding on military cooperation on Friday, the Israeli army’s Arabic spokesperson Avichay Adraee said on Twitter.
