In November 2015 the Barack Ravid reported in the newspaper ha’aretz that in Abu Dhabi will open an official representation in Israel. This diplomatic mission will only work with located in the capital of the UAE headquarters the International Agency for renewable energies (IRENA).
Barack Ravid noted that the Israeli representative office in the UAE will be unique in its kind. As a rule, countries with embassies in Abu Dhabi, assign one employee to represent their interests in IRENA.
States that do not have embassies in UAE, send your representatives a few times a month, but do not contain in Abu Dhabi permanent missions for this purpose.
Israel was the only country that opened in Abu Dhabi special representation associated with IRENA, to be able to contain a diplomatic mission in the UAE. In Jerusalem, called the move a «breakthrough» and «great foreign policy success.»
