“The potential is endless” for future Israeli and UAE cooperation, former Mossad chief Yossi Cohen said on Sunday. Speaking in Abu Dhabi at the “Beyond Business” conference hosting hundreds of business leaders from both countries, the former spy chief said the hundreds of millions of dollars in trade between the two countries to date are still only the beginning of the process. He said that Israelis and Emiratis, “have the brains, the guts… by all aspects we are just warming up.”

Asked how hard it was to “make the dream happen” of Israeli-UAE normalization – given that Cohen received significant credit for paving the way to the eventual deal negotiated in Washington in August 2020 – he said “that is something I thought over many months after the treaty was signed on the grounds of the White House.” The signing ceremony took place a few months after the initial announcement.
