Foreign Minister Yair Lapid and his Moroccan counterpart, Nasser Bourita, sign three agreements in Rabat.

The agreements include a memorandum of understanding establishing a political consultation mechanism between the two ministries, an agreement on cooperation in culture, sport and youth, as well as an agreement on direct flights between the two countries.

Lapid’s trip marks the first official visit of an Israeli delegation to Morocco in 20 years.

“The agreements that we will sign will bring our countries innovation and opportunities for the benefit of our children – and their children – for years to come,” says Lapid at the ceremony. “Today, we are not being good politicians, we are being good parents.”
