During the conversation, the second between Netanyahu and the Crown Prince, the two leaders discussed ways of strengthening bilateral relations between their countries.

Netanyahu said after the conversation: “I just spoke with Bahraini Crown Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa. This was our second conversation; it was very friendly.

“Both of us are very moved by the fact that we can bring peace to our peoples and our countries in a very short time. Therefore, he also invited me to make an official visit to Bahrain soon. I will do so, on your behalf, with pleasure.”
