January 29, 2021 – 4:00 pm – Morocco
Israel opened a liaison office in Morocco on Tuesday, January 26, 2021, just weeks after relations between Tel Aviv and Rabat resumed. According to the Israeli Foreign Ministry, the new ambassador and incumbent, David Gower, arrived in Rabat on the same day.
Tel Aviv is reopening a diplomatic mission 20 years after the previous liaison office closed. According to the Israeli Foreign Ministry, this is a “holiday for the State of Israel”. The same report said that David Gowrin and his team would work on bilateral relations in all areas, including political dialogue, tourism, economy and cultural relations.
Morocco and Israel signed a standardization agreement in December. The kingdom was conquered after the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Sudan.
With US support, bilateral agreements were signed on direct air links, water management, liaison between financial institutions and visa waivers for diplomats. “This is an important day for peace and an exciting day to implement our agreements with the Emirates and Morocco,” said Israeli Foreign Minister Kofi Ashkenazi.
