In a tweet, Katz said, “Yesterday, I met publicly with the Foreign Minister of Bahrain, Sheikh Khalid bin Ahmed Al Khalifa.”

Israeli foreign ministry issues an official statement that said the “meeting was coordinated behind the scenes by the US State Department as part of a conference on religious liberty organized in Washington by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo“.
