MOROCCO: Resumption of Relations with Israel, 'Natural' Decision

  Nairobi, Aug.27.– The resumption of relations between Morocco and Israel is a "natural" decision because of the cultural and historical ties uniting the two countries, through the strong Jewish community of Moroccan origin established in Israel, said Israel's Ambassador to Kenya, Joseph Oded.

This rapprochement is likely to strengthen cooperation between the two countries for the benefit of the two peoples, said Oded during an interview with the Moroccan ambassador to Kenya, El Mokhtar Ghambou, on the KTN News channel, one of the most important TV stations in East Africa.

The Israeli diplomat, who took the opportunity to hail the leadership of HM King Mohammed VI in terms of peace, modernity and development, emphasized the importance of the deep and millennial relationship between the Kingdom and the Jewish people.

"In Morocco and Israel, we have leaders who seek peace, modernity and development (...) We strongly welcome this kind of leadership," he said.
