On Sunday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke by telephone with Bahraini Foreign Minister Dr. Abdullatif bin Rashid Al Zayani and U.S. Secretary of the Treasury Steven Mnuchin ahead of the signing in Bahrain of seven memorandums of understanding (MOUs) between Israel and Bahrain.

Netanyahu “welcomed the signing” and said Israel and Bahrain “are making giant steps toward peace.”

The prime minister also “welcomed the first flight from Israel to Bahrain, which landed today, and said that it was a continuation of the breakthrough toward peace,” said an official statement from Netanyahu’s office.

Earlier i the day, a high-level delegation of American and Israeli officials landed in Bahrain to cement agreements to establish formal diplomatic relations between Israel and the Gulf Arab state.

Mnuchin and Israel’s national security adviser, Meir Ben-Shabbat, led the delegations. Bahrain became just the fourth Arab country to have full diplomatic relations with Israel.

“My hope is that this visit marks another step forward on the road to a truly peaceful, secure, stable and thriving Middle East,” Bahrain’s foreign minister, Abdullatif al-Zayani, said at a welcoming ceremony at the airport.

Bahrain joined the United Arab Emirates at a festive White House ceremony last month marking the “Abraham Accords,” a pair of U.S.-brokered diplomatic pacts with Israel. While the UAE’s deal with Israel formally established ties, the agreement with Bahrain was less detailed and included a mutual pledge to follow suit. Sunday’s one-day visit by the Israeli delegation aimed to complete that task.

The El Al flight landed at Bahrain International Airport on Sunday afternoon. The kingdom’s state-owned television channels did not carry the arrival live, nor did the state-run news agency announce the Israelis’ presence. Bahrain’s state-run news agency later published pictures of the arrival, acknowledging the Israeli officials were there to sign documents “establishing diplomatic relations between the kingdom of Bahrain and the state of Israel, in addition to a number of memoranda of understanding in the areas of joint cooperation.”

“Today is a great day.” Ben-Shabbat told the airport ceremony. “Another chapter in the vision of peace becomes a reality.”

Mnuchin said it was “incredible” to be on what was believed to be the first flight by Israel’s national carrier El Al to Bahrain. “The opportunities here are quite enormous, both economic, trade, investment, cultural and security between the three countries,” he said.

At Israel’s Ben-Gurion airport, U.S., Israeli and Bahraini flags festooned the tarmac before take-off. Ben-Shabbat, one of the key Israeli officials involved in negotiations with Bahrain, said the visit could “translate plans to actions and concrete agreements” with the signing of a range of deals involving finance, investment, trade, tourism, communications, technology and agriculture.

Another Israeli official said the visit would include a joint statement late Sunday formally establishing diplomatic relations, including the opening of embassies and exchanges of ambassadors in the coming months.

The decision to establish ties with Israel was rejected by the Palestinians, whose leadership has scathingly criticized both the Emirati and Bahrain moves as a betrayal and an undermining of the Arab stance that recognition of Israel should come only after Palestinians achieve an independent state of their own.

The Palestinians have severed ties with the White House. In the meantime, U.S. officials cultivated ties between Israel and Arab states.

Bahraini civil society groups and opposition figures, already targeted in a yearslong crackdown on dissent, have spoken out against normalization with Israel.

Bahraini and Israeli officials have held numerous conversations since announcing their intention to establish full ties. Sunday’s face-to-face meetings, however, are seen as another step toward normalization.

Meanwhile, Israel and the UAE have already signed a number of business, banking and intergovernmental agreements.

Bahrain and the UAE signed the agreement to normalize relations with Israel in a ceremony at the White House on Sept. 15. Egypt and Jordan are the only other two Arab states to sign diplomatic treaties with Israel, in 1979 and 1994, respectively.

The accords made public what had been a gradual strengthening of quiet ties between Israel and several Gulf states — forged in recent years over a shared concern over region.

另一位以色列官员说,此次访问将包括星期天晚些时候正式建立外交关系的联合声明,包括在今后几个月中使馆的开放和大使的交流。

与以色列建立联系的决定遭到了巴勒斯坦人的拒绝,巴勒斯坦人的领导人严厉地批评了阿联酋和巴林的举动是对他的背叛,并且破坏了阿拉伯的立场,即只有在巴勒斯坦人建立自己的独立国家之后,对以色列的承认才应该得到承认。 。

巴勒斯坦人与白宫断绝关系;同时,美国官员在以色列和阿拉伯国家之间建立了联系。

巴林民间社会团体和反对派人士已经以反对异议人士长达数年的镇压为目标,他们反对与以色列实现正常化。

同时,以色列和阿联酋已经签署了许多商业,银行和政府间协议。

巴林和阿联酋分别于9月15日在白宫举行的仪式上签署了与以色列关系正常化的协议。埃及和约旦分别是1979年和1994年与以色列签署外交条约的另外两个阿拉伯国家。

该协议公开了以色列和海湾国家之间逐渐加强的安静联系,这是近年来由于对地区的共同关注而形成的。
