The United Arab Emirates opened its embassy in Israel on Wednesday, with Israel’s president attending the inaugural ceremony.
“So many Israelis and Emiratis have discovered our countries and people share a great deal,” President Isaac Herzog said. “We are both nations that cherish our history and traditions while pushing the very boundaries of innovation and science. We are deeply rooted in our land while having our eyes on the stars. As we both built our modern states out of the desert sands, we made the impossible possible.”
“The peace between our nations will benefit both our peoples,” Herzog said.
