Tuesday marked the arrival of Bahraini Ambassador Khaled Yousif al-Jalahmah to Israel. Al-Jalahmah is Bahrain’s first-ever ambassador to the Jewish State, and his arrival to Israel is seen as a major success from the standpoint of both countries concerning their newfound relationship.
Israel’s Foreign Ministry Spokesman Lior Haiat praised the ambassador’s arrival, stating, “The Ambassador’s arrival, and the upcoming official opening of the Bahraini Embassy in Israel, mark an important step in developing the bilateral relations between the two countries and their peoples.”
He continued on Twitter, saying, “The Bahraini Embassy in Israel, as well as the Israeli Embassy in Bahrain, have a central role in the strengthening of the bilateral relations and serve as yet another milestone of the vision of the peace accords signed in 2020.”
Bahrain signed the Trump Administration’s ‘Abraham Accords’ in September of 2020, furthering the Jewish State’s groundbreaking normalization ties with multiple Gulf States. In addition to Bahrain, other countries in the Accords include the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Sudan, and Morocco.
