“Israel” Inaugurates Diplomatic Office in Morocco
Israeli Foreign Minister Yair Lapid opened the liaison office in Rabat during his two-day visit to Morocco.
Israeli Foreign Minister Yair Lapid, on Thursday, inaugurated the Israeli delegation in Rabat, the capital of Morocco, according to Israeli Walla News. The ceremony took place in the presence of Moroccan Deputy Foreign Minister Mohsin Jazoli.
"Historic moment: we have inaugurated the Israeli representation in Morocco during a solemn ceremony," Lapid tweeted on Thursday.
In a statement, the Israeli Foreign Ministry also announced that Yair Lapid and Moroccan Foreign Minister Nasser Bourita cut a ribbon to open the embassy.
Furthermore, Lapid delivered a letter from the President of the Israeli occupation, Isaac Herzog, to the King of Morocco, Mohammed VI, according to Israeli Channel 7 news.
The Moroccan Minister of Industry, Trade, and Investment Moulay Hafid Elalamy was quoted by the official Israeli Broadcasting Corporation KAN, describing Lapid's visit as "important to strengthen the relations between the two parties."
Additionally, a delegation of Israeli settlers visited Morocco in late July. Moroccans however, held an extensive campaign against the visit.
In December 2020, Morocco became the fourth Arab country to establish normalization ties with “Israel” after the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, and Sudan, under a deal brokered by former US President Donald Trump.
