UAE appoints envoy to Israel

United Arab Emirate, UAE, Sunday inaugurated the country’s first envoy to Israel, several months after both countries established diplomatic ties.
Mohammad Mahmoud Al Khajah was sworn before UAE Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid.
The Gulf country last month approved the opening of its diplomatic mission in Tel Aviv.
The move came following both countries’ September and historical diplomatic agreement to establish ties. The deal was brokered by former US President Donald Trump.
Khajah’s appointment also follows the designation of Eitan Na’eh who served in Turkey as Israel’s interim ambassador to the Gulf country.
