Israel’s Ambassador Arrives to Morocco
David Govrin arrives to Rabat today to serve as Charge d'Affaires until a diplomat is formally appointed
After Israel’s diplomatic missions with Rabat had been shut down for 20 years; today, Israel sent David Govrin to serve as temporarily Charge d’Affaires until the official appointment of an Ambassador to Morocco.
Israel’s office in Rabat had been closed for 20 years before it’s reopening today following the appointment of David Govrin who served as former envoy to Egypt.
The reopening of the office comes as a result of Morocco normalizing ties with Israel following US recognition of Moroccan Sahara.
The office in Rabat had been closed for 20 years but it hasn’t been sold. The closure of the office in Rabat was a result of Morocco’s support to Palestinian people during the second Intifada.
Morocco and Israel plan to open full Embassies following the re-opening of the liaison offices in both countries; however, there is no official date for the opening of the Embassies yet.
