White House senior adviser Jared Kushner will lead a US delegation to visit Israel and Morocco next week to discuss the agreement reached last week to normalize relations between the two countries.
This was announced by a senior administration official.
A US delegation and an Israeli team will work together on the first direct commercial flight from Tel Aviv to Rabat, a sign of progress following the Israeli-Moroccan deal brokered by Kouchner, an administration official told Reuters.
While in Jerusalem, Kushner, President Donald Trump’s son-in-law, will hold talks with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the official said.
El Al is expected to become the airline to fly the first direct flight from Tel Aviv to Rabat, which will carry Kushner’s team and a delegation led by Israel’s national security adviser Meir Ben Shabat, the official added.
The agreement between Israel and Morocco is the fourth to be reached with the mediation of the United States. Earlier, Israel has concluded similar agreements with the UAE, Bahrain and Sudan.
