Israel will send a business delegation to a U.S.A led economic conference in Bahrain, which is focusing on the Palestinian economy, as part of the Trump administration’s Middle East peace plan rather than government personnel, according to The HILL.
Israeli Foreign Minister Israel Katz, reported that Israel will have the ability to contribute to development through technology and innovation.
The countries which will attend the summit include Egypt, Jordan, Morocco, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and United Arab Emirates. On other hand, Palestinian leadership explained that they will not attend.
Egypt and Jordan attendance is reportedly considered particularly crucial since they are in close proximity to Israel and the Palestinian territories.
Noteworthy, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas cut off negotiations with the U.S. after the U.S. moved its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem in 2017.
