The main adviser to the outgoing US president, Jared Kushner, will travel to Morocco next week aboard the first commercial flight Tel Aviv-Rabat.
Jared Kushner will be in Israel on Monday, December 21, where he will meet Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and he will then fly to Morocco the next day accompanied by an Israeli delegation led by the national security adviser of Israel, Meir Ben-Shabbat.
During this visit, Kushner will sign bilateral agreements with members of the Moroccan government in Rabat. These agreements will be economic. Last week, US Ambassador to Morocco David Fischer said his country would take steps to strengthen trade and economic relations with the kingdom.
The announcement of this visit comes a few days after the American recognition of the Moroccan character of the Sahara.
Jared Kushner’s last visit to Morocco was in May 2019. He was received by King Mohammed VI at the Royal Palace in Rabat for an ftour. This visit came ahead of the peace conference, scheduled a month later in Bahrain, where the United States was to unveil the economic component of the Israeli-Palestinian peace plan.
