Yair Lapid, Israel’s foreign minister, stated on Wednesday that he is in contact with counterparts from three countries with which Israel has no formal relations.
Lapid, on the other hand, did not name these nations.
Saudi Arabia and Indonesia, on the other hand, are on Israel’s list of countries seeking to establish ties with Tel Aviv, according to Lapid.
When asked if an Israeli official will accompany US Vice President Joe Biden on his upcoming visit to Saudi Arabia, Lapid didn’t say yes or no, but did leave the possibility open by joking that Biden’s plane is “a big aircraft,” according to an Israeli news website.
Israel’s foreign minister also stated that the country is still looking to add additional Arab countries to the four that have already established ties with Israel.
The Saudi and Indonesian governments have not responded to Lapid’s remarks.
In 2020, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Sudan, and Morocco inked deals with the US to repair relations with Israel.
