Foreign Minister Yair Lapid is planning on visiting Morocco early next month to attend the inauguration of the Israeli diplomatic mission in Rabat, according to the Walla news site.

Citing Israeli sources, the news site says Lapid agreed on the visit with his Moroccan counterpart Nasser Bourita during a phone call next week, but morbidity levels in Israel and Morocco could cause the date to be changed.

The visit will be the first by an Israeli minister since the two countries agreed to renew diplomatic ties last year.
