The Moroccan minister continued: “Since 2018, there have been many contacts, according to the instructions of His Majesty. His Majesty spoke with the US president and sent delegations to the United States, not only to meet with US officials but also with the Israelis.”
Bourita stressed that relations with Israel do not conflict with Morocco’s support and advocacy for the Palestinian cause while praising the US recognition of Moroccan sovereignty over Western Sahara, and Washington’s support for Rabat’s position on this issue.
