Prime Minister Yair Lapid received Emirati Foreign Minister Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan this evening in Jerusalem. The visit marks two years since the signing on the White House lawn of the Abraham Accords between Israel, the Emirates and Bahrain, under the auspices of then-US President Donald Trump.

Addressing the cameras, Lapid said, "This is the historic visit of a regional leader, a visit which will promote the regional architecture that we have been building over the past year in the Middle East. It is a visit of a close and dear friend with which we can talk about everything.
