Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett will meet ministers from Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates on Sunday, his first meetings with Gulf leaders since taking office in June reports Reuters.

The meetings with Bahrain's foreign minister and a UAE minister were announced by Bennett in a statement on Saturday and will take place on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in New York.

Bahrain and the UAE normalised relations with Israel last year. Israeli Foreign Minister Yair Lapid, who visited Dubai in June, is expected to travel to Bahrain soon.

OPINION: Was Bennett's visit to Egypt really 'historic'?
