Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi, has invited Israeli President Reuven Rivlin to visit the UAE.

During an exchange of messages on Tuesday, Sheikh Mohamed received a message from President Rivlin discussing ways to improve bilateral relations between the countries.

The Israeli President appreciated the efforts made to sign the historic peace accord, and extended an invitation to Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed to visit Israel.

In his reply, Sheikh Mohamed also expressed the UAE’s appreciation for the cooperation that led to the signing of the peace deal earlier this year and invited the Israeli President to the Emirates.

The historic Abraham Accords between the UAE, Bahrain and Israel were signed in the US in September, marking normalisation of ties between the countries.

Last month, the first-ever official delegation of UAE ministers visited Israel, where a number of landmark agreements were signed across sectors including investment, tourism, financial services and technology.

The UAE, US and Israel have also jointly established a $3bn Abraham Fund to help stimulate private sector-led investments across the region. The fund will bolster regional trade, enable strategic infrastructure projects and increase energy security.

UAE and Israel also announced plans to introduce reciprocal visa-free travel, as part of which Emiratis can travel to Israel for up to 90 days without a visa.
