In order to participate in a military conference in the city of Tel Aviv, Morocco’s army chief Lt. Gen. Belkhir El-Farouk started an official visit to Israel on Tuesday.
An official reception ceremony was organized for El-Farouk upon his arrival and was welcomed by Israeli army chief Aviv Kochavi.
Along with the participation of military leaders from other countries, El-Farouk will take part in the Israeli army’s International Operational Innovation Conference.
The Moroccan army confirmed El-Farouk’s participation in the conference on Monday, which takes place on September 12 to 15.
In a statement, the army expressed, “It will lay the foundations for solid cooperation in the field of multi-dimensional defense and military renewal.”
The Israeli army said dozens of military leaders would take part in the conference, including Arab countries, last week.
After their suspension in 2000, Israel and Morocco announced the resumption of bilateral diplomatic relations in 2020.
