EJC welcomes reestablishment of full ties between Israel and Morocco

(Friday, December 11, 2020) – The European Jewish Congress (EJC) has welcomed and lauded the reestablishment of full ties and warm relations between the State of Israel and the Kingdom of Morocco.

“This is an important day, especially given the long ties between Morocco and the Jewish People,” Dr. Moshe Kantor, President of the EJC, said. “Morocco has always been very proud of its Jewish heritage and community, and this is a natural step. This historic occasion may prove to be an extremely important development in future relations between Muslim and Jewish communities of Moroccan descent in Europe and around the world.”

“We would like to congratulate President Donald Trump, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and King Mohammed VI on this bold move. We hope all the nations of the region will join hands in tolerance and reconciliation, and join the circle of peace which is ever expanding.”

Morocco became the fourth Arab state to normalise ties with Israel in recent months, following the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Sudan.
