High-level US-Israeli delegation arrives in Morocco

After the diplomatic resumption between Morocco and Israel in the wake of the American recognition of full sovereignty of Morocco over the Sahara, the world awaited the first official flight between Israel and the Kingdom, this Tuesday, December 22. The American delegations, led by Jared Kushner, and the Israeli delegations led by Meir Ben-Shabba, landed at Rabat airport at 2:30 p.m., after a 6 hour flight from Tel Aviv.

The head of Israel’s National Security Council, Meir Ben-Shabbat, leads the delegation, which also includes senior officials in the foreign ministry, including the one in charge of relations with Morocco, and other senior leaders. In contrast, no cabinet minister Netanyahu made the trip to Rabat.

This visit should be marked by a series of talks with the country’s senior authorities including the head of government, Saâd Eddine El Othmani, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Nasser Bourita, and the Minister Delegate in charge of African cooperation, Mohcine Jazouli.

These discussions will also be marked by the signing of several agreements aimed at improving the development of relations between the United States, Morocco and Israel.
