Senior officials in the United Arab Emirates  declined on Monday to receive Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, according to the Occupation Forces Radio, before the Knesset elections ,which  will be held on the 23rd of this month.


The Emirati stand came "by saying that it is preventing itself from intervening in internal issues and denying Netanyahu's attempts to manipulate his friendship with her in his election campaign," according to political correspondent Moriah Felberg on the radio.


Netanyahu's intention to visit the Emirates and Bahrain in the coming days, following the recent facilities and the opening of Ben Gurion Airport to passenger traffic, is noteworthy, particularly because he had postponed it many times due to the procedures for dealing with the Corona crisis, according to "Israeli" sources.
