The two agreements were signed about two months ago on August 11, when Foreign Minister Yair Lapid visited Morocco and inaugurated the Israeli delegation in the capital Rabat. “The agreements we will sign will bring to our countries innovation and opportunities that our children and their children after them will enjoy many years after we are not here,” then-Minister Lapid said in a joint statement with Morocco’s foreign minister. In addition, the Foreign Minister announced at the time that the two countries would open full embassies within about two months, which could herald complete normalization.
