Nasser Bourita: We Hope To Exchange High-Level Visits With Israel Very Soon
“We are sincere in our commitments, because we made the decision to resume relations with Israel with conviction, and we will go as far as possible in developing bilateral cooperation”.
The Minister of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation, and Moroccan Expatriates, Nasser Bourita, stressed that “all the tools for cooperation with Israel are available, and the political will is present. I hope that we will be able to exchange high-level visits very soon.”
In an interview with the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) shared via YouTube, yesterday evening, Bourita said: “We are sincere in our commitments, because we made the decision to resume relations with Israel with conviction, and we will go as far as possible in developing bilateral cooperation”.
He noted, “A tripartite agreement was signed between Morocco, Israel and the United States, and it is a legally binding document, and includes the US recognition of Moroccan sovereignty over Sahara, Morocco’s commitment to developing relations with Israel, and Israel’s commitment to cooperation with the Kingdom of Morocco.”
Bourita added, “We need to coordinate action as allies to confront Iranian threats related to nuclear activities, as Iran is destabilizing North Africa and West Africa,” adding, “Iran has threatened the territorial integrity and security of Morocco, by supporting the Polisario militia and training them and giving them arms, just as Iran is spreading through Hezbollah in West Africa, and today we are still guarding against Iranian threats to the security of the Moroccan people.”
