Preparations are underway for an Israeli delegation visit to Saudi Arabia, Member of the Knesset Issawi Frej said.

His remarks came in a radio interview following a visit by retired Saudi general Anwar Eshki to Israel in July. Eshki headed a delegation of academics and businessmen.

Frej pointed out that the delegation will include left wing MKs and other figures.

According to Frej, the Saudi delegation expressed its wish to strengthen relations with Israel.

Israel’s Jerusalem Post newspaper also reported former Israeli Minister for Diaspora Affairs, Rabbi Michael Melchior, saying that Israelis may be able to visit the Gulf state “much sooner than you dream about.”
