Foreign Minister Yair Lapid says that he and his Moroccan counterpart, Nasser Bourita, agreed this morning to each open full embassies in each other’s countries within two months.

Lapid adds that Bourita is expected to be aboard the first Royal Air Maroc flight from Morocco to Israel in either October or early November in order to open the Moroccan Embassy in Tel Aviv.

Lapid is on a historic trip to Morocco — the first high-level Israeli delegation there since the two countries reestablished diplomatic ties last year.

He met for an extended conversation with Bourita and also inaugurated the opening of an Israeli liaison office in Rabat earlier today.
