Israel, UAE to Start Talks on Free Trade Deal

Abu Dhabi, Jun 30 (UNI/Sputnik) UAE Foreign Minister Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan and his Israeli counterpart, Yair Lapid, launched talks about a free trade agreement on Wednesday.

Lapid has already inaugurated the Israeli Embassy in Abu Dhabi and the Consulate General in Dubai.
"Both sides expressed that they are looking forward to signing a free trade agreement, and they have commenced discussions on this matter," the ministers said in a joint statement.
The diplomats also signed an agreement on economic and trade cooperation to facilitate bilateral trade in goods and services. In addition, they agreed on cooperation in holding exhibitions, exchanging experience and agricultural technologies.
The two pledged to support mutual investments further.
