Bennett arrives in UAE to meet bin Zayed, discuss Iranian file
Following the IAEA's adoption of a resolution condemning Iran's nuclear activity, the Israeli occupation's Prime Minister lands in the United Arab Emirates.
The Israeli occupation's Prime Minister Naftali Bennett landed in the United Arab Emirates on Thursday for talks with President Sheikh Mohammad bin Zayed Al-Nahyan, following a free trade deal signed last month.
Bennett's second visit to the UAE since the two normalized relations in a US-brokered 2020 deal also comes after the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) adopted a resolution against Iran's nuclear activity.
The Israeli PM's office said the "snap visit" would touch on "various regional issues."
According to Israeli media, Bennett and bin Zayed will touch on the developments of the Iranian nuclear file.
Speaking before leaving for UAE, Bennett hailed the IAEA for condemning Iran.
"We see here a firm stance by the countries of the world regarding the distinction between good and evil, as they clearly state that Iran is concealing things," he said, according to a statement from his office.
It is noteworthy that the IAEA’s adoption of the resolution came after a surprising meeting between the Director-General of the Agency, Rafael Mariano Grossi, and Bennett, in "Tel Aviv" on June 3.
The UAE was the first Gulf country to normalize ties with the Israeli occupation.
The visit will mark Bennett's first meeting with Sheikh Mohammad bin Zayed Al-Nahyan since he assumed the presidency following the death of his half-brother Sheikh Khalifa last month.
Bennett and Bin Zayed met twice last year, in Abu Dhabi and in Egypt.
