The former American ambassador told MAP that this is more evidence of the strength of ties between Morocco and Israel and welcomed the support given to the Moroccanness of the Sahara by many important countries, including Spain and many others in Europe and internationally.
He added that this State decision, which reflects the illustrious relationships that Morocco, Israel, and the United States have consistently cultivated, will strengthen regional stability, prosperity, and peace.
