Morocco's and Israel's foreign ministers signed three agreements on Wednesday, marking the first visit by a top official from the Jewish state since relationships were normalized last year.
Moroccan and Israeli foreign ministers signed three agreements on Wednesday in Rabat marking a historic visit.
Nasser Bourita and Yaïr Lapid, signed agreements on political consultations, aviation, and culture.
To begin with, Moroccan Jews lived in Morocco in peace and goodwill throughout the most of this history. That is the reason why Morocco is considered a part of the identity of hundreds of thousands of Israelis.
However, as Yaïr Lapid stated, Moroccan Jews will not come as tourists to Morocco; instead, they will come as a family to learn more about their ancestry and heritage.
The Moroccan – Israeli bilateral relationship has a positive dynamic as a result of the collective agreements efforts.
Morocco and Israel formed five work groups to keep up with the current momentum in relations, encompassing such potential industries as scientific research, innovation, tourism, aviation, agriculture, energy, the environment, commerce, and investment.
Hence, two meetings were conducted by the multisectoral work groups, as well as continuous interactions with the appropriate ministerial sectors.
Decidedly, the two countries have signed three new agreements in the areas of aviation, youth, sports, and political consultations in order to add to the legal framework regulating bilateral ties.
For years to come, the signed agreements will bring innovation and opportunity to the two nations, benefiting each others children – and their children.
The Israeli Foreign Minister expressed his gratitude to His Majesty King Mohammed VI. “His vision and courage enabled us to be here today”.
He also thanked the Prime Minister Naftali Bennet, likewise, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Morocco, Nasser Bourita whom believed in the project from the beginning and helped driving it ahead, even through difficult times.
And then he thanked the staff at the Israel Ministry of Foreign Affairs, headed by Director General Alon Ushpiz, as well as the Minister of Labor and Welfare, Meir Cohen.
