Morocco received on Tuesday an invitation to attend the Arab League summit in Algeria in November.

Algerian President Abdelmadjid Tebboune issued an invitation letter to Moroccan King Mohammed VI to join the summit.

Algerian Justice Minister Abderachid Tabi traveled to Morocco’s capital Rabat on Tuesday to hand-deliver the invitation to Moroccan Foreign Minister Nasser Bourita.

The summit is scheduled for November 1 and 2.

Algeria severed diplomatic ties with Morocco last year, over alleged “hostile” actions from its neighbor.

The tensions between Algeria and Morocco stem largely from a dispute over the Western Sahara, which is claimed by Morocco.

Asharq Al-Awsat had recently learned from a trusted source in Rabat that King Mohammed was planning on attending the summit

The Algerian justice minister also hand-delivered invitations to other Arab countries last week.
