Ahead of the Israeli government’s formal approval of the standardization agreements with the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain, Prime Minister Netanyahu announced that he had a telephone conversation over the weekend with UAE Crown Prince Sheikh Mohammad bin Zayed.

“This weekend, I spoke with my friend, the Crown Prince of the United Arab Emirates, Sheikh Mohammad bin Zayed,” the prime minister said, according to the released press release.

“I invited him to visit Israel, he invited me to visit Abu Dhabi,” he said.

No mention of where they will meet, Netanyahu said he invited the crown prince to visit Israel.

A statement from the Emirates’ official news agency said Netanyahu had initiated the phone call and that the two “discussed the progress of bilateral relations in view of the peace deal recently signed by the two countries.”

There was no mention of a meeting or a return visit.

It was the first time since the August 13 announcement of the normalization agreements that Netanyahu spoke with the Crown Prince.
