Israel and Morocco have signed agreements to strengthen bilateral relations

The agreements are aimed at strengthening the alliance in the fields of economy and education, said the Israeli envoy.

Israeli and Moroccan institutions signed two agreements on Friday to boost economic and educational co-operation, the head of Israel’s diplomatic mission in Morocco said.

The first agreement was signed between the General Confederation of Moroccan Enterprises (CGEM), the largest corporate group in Morocco, and one of Israel’s leading technology companies, IBEO, said David Govrin on Twitter.

Another agreement was signed between the National School of Business and Management in Casablanca and the School of Management of Tel Aviv University, Govrin said.

The agreement will provide Israeli and Moroccan students with better education and employment opportunities, he said.

  Israel is reopening its borders after a year-long restriction

Israel has named Govrin, its former ambassador to Egypt, as Chargé d’Affaires in Morocco on January 11. The move comes 20 years after the closure of the North African liaison office.

In 2000, Morocco severed ties with Israel after the latter’s violent reaction to the second Palestinian intifada and the cessation of peace talks with the Palestinians.

But in December, Morocco resumed diplomatic relations under a US-sponsored agreement. It became the fourth Arab country to agree to normalize with Israel in 2020 after the UAE, Bahrain and Sudan.
