Morocco re-opens embassy in Iraq after an 18-year absence

Nasser Bourita who is Morocco’s foreign minister and his Iraqi counterpart signed on Saturday a memorandum of understanding. Baghdad welcomed Morocco’s move to reopen its embassy in Iraq which closed after two Moroccan nationals were kidnapped 18 years ago.

Bourita hailed a historic visit, from the standpoint of being the first visit by a foreign minister to Baghdad for a quarter of a century, approximately, and it is the first visit for a government official in two decades.

Referring to Israeli-Palestinian violence that spiked in recent days, with an Israeli military raid on a militant stronghold in the West Bank and a Palestinian shooting attack in an east Jerusalem Jewish settlement, he pleaded for a return to calm.

Morocco is one of the Arab countries that has grown closer to Israel in recent years.
