A visiting delegation from Israel and officials in Bahrain will sign a “joint communique that is the establishment of full diplomatic relations,” an Israel official told reporters.

The statement came after Israel and Bahrain reached a US-brokered normalisation deal last month.

The United Arab Emirates and Bahrain became the third and fourth Arab states to agree to normalise ties with Israel, following Egypt’s peace deal with Israel in 1979 and a 1994 pact with Jordan.

The Israel-Bahrain peace agreement received the support of France, Germany, and Oman, but faced strong opposition from Palestine, Turkey, and Iran.
