Israel re-launches 'virtual embassy' for Gulf dialogue

Feb. 6, 2019 1:35 P.M. (Updated: Feb. 10, 2019 3:52 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- The Israeli Foreign Ministry re-launched a “virtual embassy” to promote dialogue with the Gulf countries.

The Israeli Foreign Ministry said in a tweet, "We are pleased to announce the re-launch of 'Israel in the Gulf' page which aims to promote dialogue between Israel and the Gulf nations.”

The ministry added, "We hope this virtual embassy will contribute to deepen understanding between the peoples of the Gulf and the people of Israel in various fields.”

The “Israel in the Gulf” Twitter page was first launched in mid-2013, however, stopped being active after one year.

Prior to the re-launch of the Twitter page, Ofir Gendelman, a spokesperson for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, urged Gulf followers to follow the page “with a view to promoting dialogue between you and us.”

Israel does not have diplomatic relations with members of the Gulf Cooperation Council – Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Oman, Qatar, and Kuwait.

Following Netanyahu’s surprise visit to Oman, upon an invitation from the ruler, a number of Israeli ministers visited the UAE and Bahrain to attend economic conferences and sports competitions.
