Morocco is betraying the Palestinian nation by concluding a peace agreement with Israel brokered by U.S. President Donald Trump, a senior foreign advisor to the Iranian parliament speaker, Hossein Amir Abdollahian, said on Friday.
Trump announced on Thursday that Israel and Morocco agreed to establish full diplomatic ties and air travel between the two nations.
As part of the peace deal, the two countries will reopen liaison offices in Rabat and Tel Aviv, with subsequent opening of full-fledged embassies.
“The normalisation of Morocco’s ties with the fake regime that occupied Jerusalem is a betrayal stabbing Palestine’s resistance in the back,” Abdollahian said in a Twitter post.
Morocco has become the fourth Arab country this year to reach an agreement on the normalisation of ties with Israel after the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, and Sudan. Morocco controls much of Western Sahara, while the pro-independence Polisario Front in the region’s south sees the kingdom as an occupant.
Since the Trump-sponsored Abraham Accords system in place, the Iranian authorities view each new peace agreement with the Jewish state as a betrayal of the Palestinian authorities.
