Foreign Minister Yair Lapid inaugurates Israel’s Liaison Office in Rabat, Morocco, this morning, alongside Moroccan Deputy Foreign Minister Mohcine Jazouli.
Welfare Minister Meir Cohen and Yesh Atid MK Ram Ben Barak attend the ceremony. Moroccan Foreign Minister Nasser Bourita, who met with Lapid yesterday, is not present.
Until now, Israeli diplomats stationed in the city worked out of a hotel. The new office will be replaced when Israel finishes renovating the building that housed Israel’s diplomatic mission in Morocco until ties were suspended with the outbreak of the Second Intifada in 2000.
