Representatives of the Jewish State and the Gulf Arab nation Gulf Arab nation signed an agriculture cooperation deal at an international conference in the Red Sea resort city of Eilat.

The latest deal focuses on “innovation in aquaculture, as part of global efforts to address food security,” said a statement issued by Israel’s Agriculture Ministry.

Pursuant to a government decision, Eilat will “become a center for research and development of food from the sea and the desert,” added the Ministry.

Since signing the 2020 Abraham Accords, the two countries have progressively boosted relations on the defense, trade, industry, political and diplomatic fronts.

Also present during the signing ceremony were delegates from  additional Abraham Accords partners -the United Arab Emirates (UAE)and Morocco, which also drew closer to Israel under the United States-mediated normalization treaties.
