Foreign Minister Yair Lapid is expected to visit the United Arab Emirates soon - this is what Walla!

The visit to the UAE is expected to be Lapid's first trip abroad as foreign minister. Senior Israeli officials said he would meet with Foreign Minister Abdullah Ben-Zayed. The two have been on the phone since Lapid took office last Sunday.

It is still unclear whether Lapid will meet with the regent of Abu Dhabi and the de facto ruler of the United Arab Emirates, Prince Muhammad bin Zayed.

If that happens, it will be the first open meeting between an Israeli figure and the ruler of the United Arab Emirates.



During his previous government tenure, then-Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu prevented Foreign Minister Gabi Ashkenazi and government ministers from visiting the United Arab Emirates before he visited there himself.

Netanyahu scheduled four visits to the United Arab Emirates, but these were repeatedly postponed due to the political situation in Israel.

On the eve of the last election, former Mossad chief Yossi Cohen tried to arrange a visit to Netanyahu for Netanyahu.

Netanyahu was about to set off, but the night before, the Jordanian regent's visit to the Temple Mount was canceled following a debate over security arrangements.

The Jordanians in response did not allow Netanyahu to reach Amman to fly from there to Abu Dhabi - and he was forced to cancel the visit.
