Morocco and the State of Israel are called upon to continue to build and strengthen their bilateral ties, said Wednesday Israeli Foreign Minister Yaïr Lapid during a video conference held on the occasion of the first anniversary of the Joint Trilateral Declaration signed between Morocco, the United States and Israel. “We must continue to build, find new initiatives and strengthen our bilateral ties,” said the Israeli top diplomat, during this commemoration held with the participation of the Minister of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation and Moroccans Abroad, Nasser Bourita, the U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken and the Chargé d’Affaires of the United States embassy in Morocco, David Greene. “We are celebrating a year of renewed peace between old friends. The ties between our peoples are deep and the relations between our countries are stronger than ever,” he said, stressing that “today we are building closer relations between peoples and between economic actors with a view to securing a more in-depth strategic cooperation”.
