Bahrain normalized ties with Israel back in 2020, under the Abraham Accords

Israel’s Prime Minister Naftali Bennett met with Bahrain’s Crown Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa on Tuesday for a discussion on the sidelines of the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26).

The meeting was historic in that it marked the first time the pair sat down together since Bahrain and Israel agreed to normalize relations in the 2020 Abraham Accords.

No additional details on the talks were provided by Israel’s Prime Minister’s Office.
