During Biden’s visit to Israel, a summit is being prepared with the participation of Arab leaders

According to the pan-Arab newspaper Al-Arabi al-Jadid, citing Egyptian and Western diplomatic sources, intensive work has begun on holding a US-Arab-Israeli summit in Israel in June 2022.

US President Joe Biden is scheduled to visit Israel at the end of June. It is proposed to invite the King of Bahrain Hamad bin Issa, the President of Egypt Abd al-Fattah al-Sisi and the heir to the throne of Abu Dhabi, Sheikh Mohammed bin Salman, the de facto ruler of the United Arab Emirates, to the summit.

An invitation was also sent to King Abdullah II of Jordan, but it is expected that the monarch will not attend the meeting due to the situation in Jerusalem, in particular because of the demands of the Hashemite kingdom to expand the powers of the Waqf on the Temple Mount.

It is also unclear whether President al-Sisi will arrive in Israel. He offered to hold this summit in Sharm el-Sheikh, but this proposal was rejected by the US. Biden refused to visit Cairo because of the human rights situation. Egypt also does not want to be drawn into a conflict with Iran.
