Bahrain’s minister of transportation and telecommunications and Israel’s minister of transportation on Tuesday discussed in a phone call cooperation in various sectors of transportation, Bahrain’s state news agency (BNA) reported.


Ministers Kamal bin Ahmed and Miri Regev “discussed cooperation in the various sectors of transportation, in addition to methods of development and their future impact on the economies of the region,” BNA said.


Earlier on Tuesday, Israel and Bahrain, alongside the United Arab Emirates, signed normalization agreements at the White House in Washington.


The Bahraini minister said he expects the peace declaration “to open new horizons of development and prosperity, and is looking forward to more stability and cooperation between the two countries in all aspects.”
