The United Arab Emirates (UAE) on Sunday promised to establish an embassy in the city of Tel Aviv in Israel, the UAE government said on its Twitter account, citing a cabinet decision.
The United Arab Emirates signed agreements on septemeber 15, 2020 to establish formal ties with Israel, becoming the first Arab state along with Bahrain in a quarter century to break a longstanding taboo, in a strategic realignment of Middle East countries against Iran.
