Prime Minister Naftali Bennett met a short while ago with Bahraini King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa at his palace in Manama. The two men talked privately for about an hour.

Bennett's meeting with the king followed another with Bahraini Crown Prince and Prime Minister Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, also at the royal palace, where Bennett was received with full honors. A short video posted by Bennett’s Twitter account shows the two prime ministers standing at the entrance to the royal palace with the flags of their countries waving behind them, while a Bahraini military band played the Israeli national anthem.
