Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said a delegation from Morocco will be flying into the country next week. Netanyahu confirmed the measure Saturday as they plan to strengthen new relations between the two countries.
This comes a day after Netanyahu invited Morocco’s King Mohammed VI to visit the Jewish state.
“Yesterday I had a historical call with Morocco’s King, Mohammed VI,” Netanyahu said. “We agreed that the Moroccan delegation will come here at the start of the week in order to advance it all. Opening of offices, advancing to embassies, direct flights from Israel to Morocco back and forth.”
God bless the King of Morocco, Mohammed VI, who took a courageous step to make peace with Israel.
