Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed al-Nahyan said in a tweet earlier in the day that he had had a phone call with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to discuss strengthening bilateral ties and the prospects for peace in the region.

The Israeli Cabinet on Monday approved a normalisation deal with the United Arab Emirates and will submit it for parliamentary ratification, an official statement says.

"The cabinet unanimously approved the prime minister's offer to transfer the peace treaty "The Abraham Accords Peace Agreement: Treaty of Peace, Diplomatic Relations and Full Normalization Between the United Arab Emirates and the State of Israel" to the Knesset for [further] approval before its ratification by the government," the office wrote on Twitter.

At the same time, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stated that he has invited the Abu Dhabi crown prince to Israel and has received a reciprocal invitation to visit the UAE.
