How many memoranda have Manama and Tel Aviv signed?
7 Memoranda of Understanding.
How did the Bahraini Foreign Ministry describe those agreements?
She claimed to serve the peoples of the region.
The Bahraini government signed agreements and memoranda of understanding with the occupation government delegation, which arrived in Manama on Sunday.
These agreements come within the framework of the agreement to normalize relations, which the two sides signed in mid-September, under American auspices.
Bahraini Foreign Minister Abdul Latif Al-Zayani said that his country had signed an agreement to establish diplomatic relations with the occupation government.
Al-Zayani renewed Manama moving forward on what he called the peace track, pointing to the need to reach a two-state solution with regard to the Palestinian issue.
The two parties signed seven memoranda of understanding in the fields of agriculture, finance and economy, and the Bahraini Foreign Ministry said that these agreements serve the peoples of the region.
Saudi and Emirati media also reported that Israeli Foreign Minister Gabi Ashkenazi is submitting to the Bahraini Foreign Minister a formal request to open an embassy in Manama.
For his part, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu congratulated the Bahraini Foreign Minister for signing the new agreements, and said that diplomatic missions will work to endorse these agreements.
Commenting on these agreements, he said that he spoke with “Al-Zayani” and US Treasury Secretary Stephen Minuchin, noting that “we are advancing peace by taking giant steps.”
Earlier today, the first Israeli plane took off from David Ben Gurion Airport in “Tel Aviv” to the Bahraini capital, Manama, with an Israeli delegation accompanied by American officials, to sign a diplomatic agreement to open two embassies.
The plane was received by Bahraini Foreign Minister Abdul Latif Al-Zayani, who described the Israeli delegation’s visit to the capital, Manama, as “historic”, and as a step to activate the peace declaration between the two countries.
The Israeli delegation is headed by National Security Adviser Meir Ben Shabat, while the US delegation is headed by the Treasury Secretary, and it also includes Avi Berkowitz, adviser to US President Donald Trump.
For his part, the head of the Israeli delegation, National Security Adviser Meir Bin Shabat, said: “We want to consecrate warm relations with the people of Bahrain. We hope to create peace in a way that changes the future of the region, and to strengthen economic agreements between Bahrain and Israel.”
For his part, an Israeli official said that the diplomatic agreement expected to be signed today between “Israel” and Bahrain will culminate 20 years of secret relations between the two countries.
The official broadcasting organization quoted an unnamed official as saying, “We are talking about relations that have been under the radar for 20 years, and there is now an opportunity to bring them to light.”
Expectations indicated that the Israeli delegation would sign with Bahrain 6 or 7 documents for cooperation between the two countries’ foreign ministries, an agreement on issuing visas for holders of official passports, and other agreements in the fields of communications and trade, according to the same source.
It is expected that the duration of the visit of the Israeli delegation in Manama will not exceed 7 hours, after which it will return to “Tel Aviv.”
The visit comes in support of the agreement signed by Bahrain and the UAE with “Israel” in the White House to normalize relations, under American auspices, on September 15th.
This step was met with widespread condemnation, and the Palestinian factions and leadership considered it a “betrayal” and a stab in the back of the Palestinian people.
The Palestinian leadership rejects any normalization of relations between “Israel” and the Arab countries before ending the Israeli occupation of the occupied territories in 1967.
