It should be noted that in September 2020, diplomatic relations between the UAE and Israel were established under the US-brokered Ibrahim Agreement, and in the same year, four more Arab countries restored relations with Israel.
On the other hand, Azerbaijan has also announced to open its embassy in Israel today. This embassy will be opened in Tel Aviv, while Israel has its own embassy in Azerbaijan’s capital, Baku, since 1993.
Azerbaijan is a Shia-majority country with strong relations with Iran, but despite Iran’s opposition, Azerbaijan announced the opening of its embassy.
