Direct flights between the two countries and the establishment of embassies will be on the agenda, says Israel’s prime minister.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Saturday 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 on Facebook that he spoke on Friday with Morocco’s King Mohammed VI and they agreed 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,” Netanyahu said, 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 with senior officials in Morocco, including the king, last week, following Morocco’s Dec. 10 decision to normalize relations with the Jewish state.
