Israel Signs Contract to Build Embassy in Morocco As Relations Improves

Israel said it has signed a contract to build the headquarters of the Israeli Embassy in Morocco as relations between the two states have improved.

“I am very happy to share this photo of this historical moment of signing the contract of establishing a permanent embassy in Morocco,” Israeli Ambassador David Govrin said in a tweet.

Govrin said that he is “pleased to witness such a landmark agreement,” hailing it as the beginning of a new era in relations between Israel and Morocco.

There is no immediate comment from Moroccan authorities on the matter.

Israeli news agency Ynet reported that the construction will cost $4 million and will be built in the same property where Israel had presence before 2000.

Morocco was the fourth Arab country to normalize relations with Israel under a US-brokered deal in 2020 after the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Sudan.
