Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will visit the United Arab Emirates (UAE) on Thursday, according to Israeli media on Wednesday.
Netanyahu will meet with Mohammed bin Zayed, the crown prince of Abu Dhabi, during the visit, Israeli newspaper Haaretz reported.
Netanyahu’s visit to the Gulf state was previously postponed due to restrictions imposed in Israel to stem the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.
Thursday’s visit comes less than two weeks before Israel will go to general elections, which will decide Netanyahu's political future amid intense competition between rival parties.
In September 2020, Israel established formal relations with the UAE and Bahrain as part of a US-brokered agreement, a move that was followed by Sudan and Morocco.
