Bahrain Mirror: Bahraini Ambassador to Israel, Khalid Yousif Al-Jalahma, discussed ways to bolster space cooperation with Israel during a meeting with the CEO of Bahrain's National Space Science Agency (NSSA) Mohammed Ibrahim Al-Asiri, state news agency (BNA) reported.

Both officials reviewed the potential cooperation between NSSA and the relevant authorities in Israel, in a bid to boost partnership between both countries in space and advanced sciences.

Al-Jalahma reiterated efforts to support NSSA's efforts in developing the space sector in Bahrain and achieving the Kingdom's goals in space.

Al-Asiri wished the ambassador success in his diplomatic role in Israel, which established formal relations with Bahrain in September 2020 under the US-brokered Abraham Accords.

Al-Jalahma was appointed as the first Bahraini ambassador to Israel in April 2021.
