Joe Biden said in a telephone conversation with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday that the United States has continued to support the recent normalization of relations between Israel and several Arab and Muslim countries. A commitment to Morocco.
While Algerian lobbies are campaigning to change the US recognition of the Sahara of Morocco in exchange for normalizing relations between Morocco and Israel, it seems that the new US president does not want to change his pioneering policy on the matter.
Biden reaffirmed “US support for the recent normalization of relations between Israel and Arab and Muslim countries” and stressed the “importance of working for peace throughout the region between Israelis and Palestinians.” That was stated in a White House press release.
At the end of January, the new US Secretary of State, Anthony Blinken, had already responded during a conversation with his Israeli envoy, Kofi Ashkenazi, to normalize relations between Israel and the four Arab states. He later welcomed the Abrahamic agreements between Israel, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Sudan and Morocco. “It is in the best interest of the United States to continue this process, including under Piton,” he said.
