(JNS) Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on December 26th that a delegation from Morocco would travel to Israel this week to advance diplomatic relations between the two countries.
Netanyahu said in a video posted online that he spoke on December 25th with Morocco’s King Mohammed VI, and they concurred that a Moroccan delegation would travel to Israel.
“We agreed that the Moroccan delegation will come here at the start of the week in order to advance it all,” said Netanyahu, adding that among the measures to be discussed were direct flights between the two countries and the establishment of embassies.
A diplomatic source speaking on condition of anonymity told Reuters that the timing and composition of the delegation has not been determined yet.
A joint Israeli-American delegation met last week with senior officials in Morocco, including the king, following the North African country’s Dec. 10 decision to normalize relations with the Jewish state.
