At a joint press conference in Jerusalem on Wednesday, Israeli Foreign Minister Gabi Askenazi said he hopes the Israeli embassy will open in Bahrain in December during his visit, the first by an Israeli minister.

The two countries also agreed to establish online visa systems, starting this December, and to operate 14 flights per week between the two countries, starting next year.

The Bahraini Foreign Minister called on Israel and Palestine to resume negotiations, focusing on a two-state solution, to address their differences.
