Israel’s president in UAE after historic visit to Bahrain

Israel's President Isaac Herzog is in Bahrain, the next stop on his historic tour.

Israeli President Isaac Herzog delivered a keynote speech today at the Abu Dhabi Space Debate, which brought together national and industry leaders to discuss their collective challenges and opportunities. He also met with Emirati President Mohammad bin Zayed Al Nhayan. Herzog had visited the Emirates last year, opening the Israeli pavilion at the 2020 Dubai Expo.

"I am proud of the important partnerships that the State of Israel has created and is developing in the field of space, including the historic partnership with the United Arab Emirates, which is manifested, among other things, in joint environmental research based on satellite data and the future of promoting solutions to the challenges facing both countries, the region, and the family of nations. For us, the sky is no longer the limit," Herzog tweeted upon landing in Abu Dhabi.
