India Welcomes Morocco’s Deal with Israel
Support for Morocco and Israel’s historic decision is not limited to the Arab world.
The December 10 agreement between Morocco and Israel to normalize ties has garnered worldwide reaction, many of which — including Bahrain, Oman, Egypt, and UAE — expressing support for the historic event.
India, with which Morocco enjoys friendly relations, eagerly welcomed the Morocco-Israel normalization agreement.
Anurag Srivastava, the spokesperson of India’s Ministry of External Affairs, said in a daily news briefing on Thursday, December 17, that the country has “very good” relations with both Morocco and Israel, asserting that India has always supported peace, stability, and development in the region — reported Hindustan Times.
Morocco is the fourth and latest Arab country that has agreed to re-establish ties with Israel. Other Arab countries include the UAE, Bahrain, and Sudan.
In line with the normalization agreement, the United States recognized Morocco’s sovereignty over its Sahara and adopted Morocco’s undivided official map including the kingdom’s southern provinces.
The recent agreement is already bearing fruit as next week the White House Senior Advisor Jared Kushner and an Israeli delegation are expected to arrive in Rabat, where bilateral agreements will take place.
