The second Negev Summit is likely to take place in Morocco at the end of June, an Israeli diplomatic official tells The Times of Israel, adding that nothing has been finalized.
Countries that were not at the 2022 summit will also be invited, says the official.
The capital city of Rabat is a possible venue.
The name of the confab is also up in the air. The Foreign Ministry is weighing names that would reflect a broader regional focus than Israel.
