The Moroccan government announced Saturday reviewing two cooperation agreements with Israel, which were signed on August 11, 2021, in Rabat.


This came during the first cabinet meeting under the chairmanship of the Head of Government Aziz Akhannouch.


The first deal is on air services with a draft law approving this agreement, while the second provides for cooperation in the fields of culture and sports.


“The government meeting will be devoted to the review of two cooperation agreements between the Government of the Kingdom of Morocco and the Government of the State of Israel, signed on August 11, 2021 in Rabat, the first concerning air services with a draft law approving this agreement while the second provides for cooperation in the fields of culture and sports,” the government said in a statement.


A ministerial council, chaired by Morocco's King Mohammed VI, is expected to approve the agreements.


The meeting also studied the agreement establishing the African Monetary Fund, adopted on May 28, 2007 in Abuja, as well as the bill to approve the agreement.


The Council reviewed the Charter of the African Cultural Renaissance, adopted at the 6th Ordinary Session of the Conference of Heads of State and Government of the African Union (AU) in Khartoum on January 24, 2006, and the bill approving the said Charter.
