Ashkenazi said it was a “pleasure” speaking with Al Khaja and said the relationship between their two countries “continues to grow stronger every day.”

The ambassador formally presented his credentials to Israeli President Reuven Rivlin.

“I pledge to work on strengthening the mutual relations and taking them to new aspects of cooperation for the interest of our two countries and people and I hope to go forward in building a warm peace in which all the people of the region will enjoy,” said Al Khaja in Arabic.

The ambassador’s appointment comes less than six months after Israeli and UAE announced they agreed to normalize ties under a US-brokered deal.

Since then, the US has brokered dies with Bahrain, Sudan, and Morocco.
