Israeli Foreign Minister to Visit Morocco Next Month
After Morocco renewed its ties with “Israel” late last year, the Israeli Foreign minister is currently working to arrange a trip to the African country.
Israeli Foreign Minister Yair Lapid is planning on visiting Morocco early next month to renew diplomatic ties and elevate Israeli representation in Morocco to the ambassadorial level, according to Israeli media.
Earlier, Lapid had invited his Moroccan counterpart, Nasser Bourita, to visit “Israel”.
In the same context, Israeli Foreign Ministry Director-General Alon Ushpiz was in Morocco last week, delivering Lapid’s written invitation during his meeting with Bourita.
In his letter, Lapid expressed his desire for progress in bilateral cooperation in the fields of trade, technology, culture, and tourism.
Citing Israeli sources, Lapid agreed on the visit with his Moroccan counterpart Nasser Bourita during a phone call on Friday last week.
Besides, the Moroccan Air Force has lately participated in the multinational Israeli Air Force exercise "Sea Breeze", along with several countries and led by the United States.
Morocco is the fourth country since August to ink a deal aimed at normalizing ties with “Israel”. The others were the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, and Sudan.
