Israeli foreign minister cancels visit to Dubai

Tel Aviv (ANN)-Israel’s foreign minister has cancelled a visit to Dubai this month due to security concerns, The Jerusalem Post newspaper reported on Sunday, Anadolu Agency reports.

Israel Katz, who doubles as intelligence minister, had been scheduled to attend mid-month meetings in the Gulf emirate ahead of its Expo 2020 Dubai.

Diplomats, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said Katz postponed the visit upon “instruction of security officials” amid rising tensions between Iran and the US following the assassination of Qasem Soleimani, an Iranian general, in a US drone airstrike in Iraq earlier this month.

Another diplomat, who also requested anonymity, said Israel was taking precautions lest Iran try to target Katz in the Gulf as part of retaliation against its US ally. The diplomat did not cite evidence to indicate any specific threat.
