Israel and Morocco Celebrate One Year of Normalization
On Thursday, December 9, Israel and Morocco marked one year of normalized relations at a joint celebration at the Watergate Hotel in Washington, D.C.
In December 2020, the State of Israel and the Kingdom of Morocco reestablished diplomatic ties through a trilateral agreement with the United States. Since this historic breakthrough, the two countries have grown closer through government relations and on a people-to-people basis. This connection builds upon decades of kinship towards the Jewish community in Morocco, from Moroccan kings to the Moroccan people, and lies at the heart of the bond between both countries.
Morocco’s Ambassador to the US Lalla Joumala and Israel’s Ambassador to the US Mike Herzog celebrated this milestone together along with distinguished guests, including the State Department’s Acting Assistant Secretary for the Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs Yael Lempert and Representatives Ted Deutch (D-FL) and Steve Cohen (D-TN).
Ambassador Herzog reiterated his commitment to working together with the Moroccans to not only expand upon relations between the two countries but to collaborate on innovative projects that will better the region. (INN / VFI News)
