The foreign ministers of Israel, the United States, the United Arab Emirates and India agreed to establish a forum for economic cooperation in a video conference on Monday evening.
The ministers agreed to meet in person at the Dubai Expo 2020 in the coming months.
Indian Foreign Minister Subrahmanyam Jaishankar was with Israeli counterpart Yair Lapid in Jerusalem for the quadripartite meeting.
Lapid said “synergy is what we are going to create starting from this meeting. Synergy is what will help us work together on infrastructure, digital infrastructure, transportation, ports, trains, maritime security.”
Each minister agreed to appoint a professional to form a joint working group on possible cooperation in these areas.

“The key to success is how fast we can go from ‘government-to-government’ to ‘business-to-business,’” Lapid added. “How fast can we turn this into a process that will put boots on the ground to change infrastructure around the world.”
Jaishankar called the meeting “fruitful.”
“Discussed working together more closely on economic growth and global issues,” he tweeted. “Agreed on expeditious follow-up.”
US Secretary of State Antony Blinken “reiterated the Biden Administration’s support for the Abraham Accords and normalization agreements and discussed future opportunities for collaboration in the region and globally,” State Department Spokesperson Ned Price said.
Jaishankar met with Lapid on Monday, and they announced that Israel and India will resume negotiations for a free trade agreement next month, with an aim to sign in mid-2022.
The Indian foreign minister also met with Energy Minister Karin Elharrar, who signed an agreement for Israel to join the International Solar Alliance, which India and France established in 2015. Joining the alliance will allow Israel to contribute its knowledge and experience on solar power.
Jaishankar’s visit comes amid a warming of ties between Delhi and Jerusalem since the election of Narendra Modi as Prime Minister of India in 2014. Modi visited Israel in 2017.
His trip also began during the Blue Flag aerial exercise in Israel, in which the Israeli, Indian, American, German, Italian, French, Greek and UK air forces took part.
