Israeli media is reporting that representatives from two Muslim majority countries, Pakistan and Indonesia, are currently in Israel on a “secret” visit focused on developing diplomatic relations. Neither of the countries currently has formal relations with Israel. The Indonesian delegation reportedly includes a “senior official.”
The nine-member delegation from Pakistan is headed by Nasim Ashraf, a former development minister. The nine-member delegation includes four who live in Pakistan and several prominent Pakistani Americans, as well as a British Pakistani imam.

The delegation conducted tours around Israel, focusing on the themes of geopolitics, history and religion, heritage, culture, and technology, with an emphasis on water technologies. Later this week, the delegation was scheduled to meet Israeli President Isaac Herzog in Jerusalem.
Military cooperation with Pakistan is important as it borders Iran. Earlier this year, Israel took part in a large-scale naval exercise in the Red Sea led by the US 5th Fleet along with Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Comoros, Djibouti, Somalia, and Yemen.
Pakistan is currently the only Muslim country with an operational nuclear capability. Last year, a Pakistani expert told i24NEWS that his country purchased technology from Israel in recent years to secure its arsenal of nuclear weapons.
It should be emphasized that although there are currently no formal diplomatic ties between Israel and Indonesia, they maintain quiet trade, tourism, and security contacts. Israel and Indonesia conduct approximately $500 million of trade per year.
