Görkem ŞEKEROĞLU -TDO- The first direct commercial flight from Israel to Morocco landed in Rabat on Tuesday (22 December) with US President Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner on board as well as Israeli National Security Adviser Meir Ben Shabbat. They are expected to sign a series of agreements in Morocco.
The two countries had agreed to establish full diplomatic relations earlier this month in a US brokered deal.
The US and Israeli representatives are expected to be received by Morocco's King Mohammed VI, who has stated that Morocco will remain an advocate for Palestinians.
"We have several agreements we are looking to conclude on the trip and hopefully it will pave the way toward a very warm peace," Kushner, a senior White House adviser, said at a press conference.
Ben Shabbat said the goal of the trip is to put the normalization agreement into practice.
