First direct phone link opened between UAE and Israel

UAE Foreign Minister Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan and Israel FM Gaby Ashkenazi ceremonially inaugurated a phone link between their countries on Sunday by an exchange of greetings. The Gulf state also unblocked some Israel news sites. Anwar Gargash, the Emirates Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, said on Friday that the teams should meet as quickly as possible to discuss mutual interests. “Our idea is to move forward,” he said. I will not surprise you if I say that the issues that interest us are agriculture, food security, cyber defense, tourism and technology. I am sure Israelis also have a list. We are the two largest economies in the region.”
