Davin Govrin has been appointed Israel’s new ambassador to Morocco after spending several months in the Kingdom as a chargé d’affaires. Strengthening the partnership between Rabat and Tel Aviv is at the top of its priorities.
After having served as director of the Liaison Office of the State of Israel in Rabat, David Govrin is now the new ambassador of the Jewish state to Morocco. The latter was officially appointed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of his country. David Govrin took care to announce the news of his appointment himself on his Twitter account. “I have the honor to inform you of my appointment as permanent ambassador of Israel to the Kingdom of Morocco”, he wrote, thanking, on this occasion, all the Moroccan authorities for their efforts to promote peace.
“We intend to work hard to strengthen the partnership that unites our two countries,” continued the new ambassador. Mr. Govrin will now head the new Israeli embassy in the Kingdom, whose headquarters were inaugurated last August by the minister of Israeli Foreign Minister during his recent visit to Morocco.
The mission of the new ambassador, 58 years old, will have to be full of challenges, like the concretization of the bilateral agreements signed during the last ten months.
Recall that Morocco and Israel reestablished their diplomatic relations on December 10, 2020, this was confirmed by a tripartite declaration, signed by Morocco, Israel and the United States which also included the American recognition of the sovereignty of Morocco over the Sahara. Since then, a series of bilateral agreements have been signed between Rabat and Tel Aviv affecting several areas of cooperation.
