Mohamed Mahmoud Al Khaja was sworn in as the first Emirati ambassador to Israel on Sunday.

Al Khaja was sworn in by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, at a ceremony at the Qasr Al Watan Palace in Abu Dhabi.

Sheikh Mohammed wished Al Khaja success in his mission, calling on the ambassador to work sincerely to strengthen the friendship and cooperation relations with Israel, and to maintain the culture of peace, coexistence and tolerance between the two nations.

In January, the UAE Cabinet approved the decision to set up an embassy in Tel Aviv, Israel, a few months after the historic signing of the Abraham Accords.

The Israeli embassy in the UAE’s capital of Abu Dhabi is currently operating out of a temporary office until a permanent facility is located.
