Lapid, Arab FMs at Sde Boker discuss ‘advancing a regional security architecture’


As four Arab foreign ministers arrive in Israel for the Negev Summit, an official close to Foreign Minister Yair Lapid tells journalists that Israel’s top diplomat and the Arab dignitaries who have arrived at Sde Boker are discussing “advancing a regional security architecture.”

The regional architecture will deal with threats by “air, sea, and piracy,” the official says at a briefing.

The official adds that the meetings so far have been “very warm including embraces and friendly conversation.”

The Bahraini, Egyptian, and Emirati foreign ministers have arrived for the six-way summit in the Negev. Morocco’s Nasser Bourita is expected to arrive at the summit at 9 p.m.

US top diplomat Antony Blinken is set to arrive from Ramallah between 9 and 10 p.m. The diplomats will hold a private dinner after his arrival.
