UAE cabinet approves opening of embassy in Tel Aviv

DUBAI: The United Arab Emirates cabinet on Sunday approved the establishment of an embassy in the city of Tel Aviv in Israel, state media said.
The UAE and Israel agreed to normalise relations in August, a deal forged largely over shared fears of Iran.
Since then Bahrain, Sudan and Morocco have all agreed to establish ties with Israel in deals brokered in 2020 by the administration of former US President Donald Trump.
No further details about the embassy were given in UAE media.

Shortly after, Israel announced it opened its embassy in the Emirati capital, Abu Dhabi, a statement from the foreign ministry said.
Israel’s government regards Jerusalem as its capital, although that is not recognized by most of the international community. Palestinians claim East Jerusalem as the capital of a future Palestinian state. Most countries have their embassies in Tel Aviv.
