RJC Applauds Renewed Ties Between Israel and Morocco

Washington, DC – The Republican Jewish Coalition welcomed the announcement that Morocco and Israel will normalize relations, thanks to the efforts of President Trump and his team. RJC National Chairman Senator Norm Coleman said:

We congratulate President Trump and the leaders of Israel and Morocco on this historic and important step toward greater stability and peace in the region. Morocco and Israel have agreed to reopen their liaison offices, with the intention of opening embassies later. Official contacts, economic cooperation, and direct flights between the two countries will also commence. All of these steps – and we hope to see even more to follow – will enhance the security and prosperity of both countries. This is the fourth such agreement between Israel and a Muslim country in the last few months, all of which came about because of President Trump’s support of Israel and his commitment to peace in the region. President Trump has accomplished, again and again, things that diplomats from the former Obama administration said couldn’t be done. We hope that the momentum of peace in the region will continue and grow in the years ahead.
