President Isaac Herzog has invited Moroccan King Mohammed VI to visit Israel.

Herzog sends a letter to the king through Foreign Minister Yair Lapid, who is visiting Rabat today as part of the first official Israeli delegation since the countries reestablished diplomatic ties last year.

“Your majesty, I would welcome the opportunity to meet with you in the near future,” the letter reads. “We are committed to deepening the strength of our relations and I hope that they further expand and flourish over time.”
