The United Arab Emirates’ first ambassador to Israel, Mohammad Mahmoud Al Khajah, completed his preliminary visit to Israel Friday after meeting with the country’s top leadership and scouting out suitable locations for the embassy and his home.

“Thanks for the warm greeting Tel Aviv-Yafo,” Al Khaja tweeted. “Feels a lot like Abu Dhabi and Dubai — dynamic and diverse cities set along the water.

“Looking forward to running and biking along the Tayelet when I’m back,” he said, using the Hebrew word for Tel Aviv’s promenade. “See you again soon.”
