The head of the Mossad met the national security adviser of the United Arab Emirates during a visit to Abu Dhabi, UAE state news agency WAM said on Tuesday.

Israel and the United Arab Emirates said on Thursday they would normalize diplomatic ties and forge a broad new relationship.

Yossi Cohen and Sheikh Tahnoun bin Zayed Al Nahyan discussed ways in which to support the new accord.

“The two sides discussed prospects for cooperation in the security field, and shared perspectives on regional developments and issues of common interested, including both countries’ efforts to contain COVID-19,” WAM added.

Following the deal’s announcement last week, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu praised Cohen in a tweet in Arabic for his help in developing Israeli relations with Gulf states, which he said helped in securing the UAE-Israel deal.
