Israel and Morocco agreed to advance extradition treaties and other efforts against crime and terror during Police Commissioner Kobi Shabtai’s visit to the North African kingdom last week, Hebrew media reports.

Unofficial sources say Israel’s police chief secured several understandings with Morocco during his 5-day visit, including information and technology sharing with regards to the war against crime and terrorism, as well as the deportation of lawbreakers, according to the Ynet news site.

During his visit, Shabtai met with the head of Morocco’s intelligence service Abdellatif Hammouchi, as well as other senior police and security officials. He also paid a visit to the Jewish community in the city of Marrakesh, where he prayed at the city’s historic synagogue.
