Israeli Minister visits Doha 31, May 2010

The Israeli Minister of Industry, Trade and Labor is visiting Doha, Qatar to head up the Israeli delegation to the World Economic Forum. Ynet states that Benjamin Ben-Eliezer will try to “persuade his counterparts in the Middle East and the Persian Gulf to take advantage of Israeli technologies to overcome obstacles and thaw relations between Israel and its neighbors.”

This is somewhat curious given that Qatar tried on at least two occasions this year to persuade Israel to reopen their trade office in Doha.

This will also be the first visit by an Israeli minister since the Hamas assassination debacle in Dubai.
