Israel and Kosovo established diplomatic ties on Monday (Feb 1), with the Muslim-majority territory recognising Jerusalem as the Jewish state's capital, putting it at odds with the rest of the Islamic world.
Israel has since August normalised ties with four Arab nations under a series of deals brokered by former US president Donald Trump, collectively known as the Abraham Accords.
But the majority-Muslim parties to those accords - the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Morocco and Sudan -- have all said their diplomatic missions will be in Tel Aviv, in line with a global consensus against recognising Jerusalem as Israel's capital until the Palestinian conflict is resolved.
In exchange for setting up its mission in Jerusalem, Kosovo gets recognition from Israel, as it seeks to further legitimise its 2008 declaration of independence from its former war foe Serbia.
Officials on Monday signed joint declarations separately in Jerusalem and Pristina, due to coronavirus restrictions.
Israel's Foreign Minister Gabi Ashkenazi said the ceremony marked "the first time in history that diplomatic relationships are being established over Zoom".
He added he had approved Kosovo's "formal request to open an embassy in Jerusalem".Read details here. : ทางเข้า slotxo
