Diplomatic relations between Morocco and Israel are experiencing one of their best moments and continue on the road to success. The two countries are constantly creating trade agreements to cooperate in various fields. As was the case earlier this year, the North African country and Israel have once again signed an agreement in which they say they are ready to make their nuclear technology available after the normalisation of relations with the Hebrew state. This was announced Wednesday by the director general of the Israel Atomic Energy Commission (IAEC), Moshe Edri.

Israel and Morocco continue to sign agreements to enhance the relationship between the two nations. This time the agreement was signed in the presence of Education Minister Yifat Shasha Biton, Aerospace Industry Chairman Amir Peretz, Bar-llan University President Professor Aryeh Tsavan, the head of the Embassy of the Kingdom of Morocco in Israel, Mr. Abderrahim Beyyoudh and senior officials of Israeli energy companies.


Beyyoudh noted that Morocco and Israel already had long-standing ties. "This will encourage us to continue to push for a better future for the whole region." The main objective of these agreements is to boost energy between the two nations in areas such as the development of rechargeable batteries, recycling, solar energy, the hydrogen economy and, one of the most important challenges for the Kingdom, the storage and transportation of its energy resources to neighbouring countries such as Spain.

The event involved scientists from Bar-Ilan University, Tel Aviv University, Ben Gurion University, Ariel University, the Technion, the Weizmann Institute and the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Professor Doron Auerbach, scientific director of Bar-Ilan's Centre for Energy and Sustainability, led the agreement with Professor Yair Einali of the Faculty of Materials Science and Engineering, and Professor Jones Elmi, senior researcher at Morocco's Mohammed VI Polytechnic University. Mohammed VI Polytechnic University President Hisham al-Habti led the Moroccan delegation to the signing ceremony. The agreement was signed by Professor Doron Auerbach on behalf of the Consortium of Israeli Scientists and President of Mohammed VI University on behalf of the Consortium of Moroccan Scientists


By saying it is "ready" to share its nuclear technology, Israel intends to further strengthen the various cooperation agreements signed with Arab countries since they decided to re-establish relations in the wake of the Abraham Accords. In his speech, the director general of the Israel Atomic Energy Commission hopes that the normalisation agreements signed in 2020 with Morocco, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain will "pave the way for meaningful direct dialogue in the region, including in nuclear forums", stressing that this new cooperation will be placed under the auspices of the IAEA. Such treaties have not gone down well in Iran, which views with suspicion the moves between the various nations that are party to them.

The statement was made on the sidelines of the 66th General Conference of the International Energy Agency in Vienna. Moshe Edri said that this is another turning point in relations between Israel and Arab countries such as Morocco, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain that have agreed to sign a peace treaty with the Jewish state, according to a press release issued by the IACE.
