Israeli occupation police chief Kobi Shabtai traveled to the United Arab Emirates on Sunday 6 February where he met his counterparts in Abu Dhabi and Dubai to establish a cooperative relationship aimed at developing fight against crime, Israeli media reported.

He is the first Israeli police chief invited to visit the Gulf state with which ‘Israel’ normalized relations more than a year ago.

In a statement, the occupation police said it intends to appoint a representative of its services in Abu Dhabi to oversee the activities of security forces in the United Arab Emirates, Africa and the Middle East.

Occupation police also released a photo of Kobi Shabtai posing in a parking lot alongside an unidentified Emirati police official.

Last week, Israeli President Isaac Herzog made his first official visit to the Emirates.

In particular, he visited the Israeli pavilion in Dubai at the 2020 World Expo and met with the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and de facto ruler of the country, Mohammed bin Zayed al-Nahyan, as well as Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al-Maktoum, Ruler of Dubai, Prime Minister and Minister of Defence.
