Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “What will Morocco gain from renewing ties with Israel? | Inside Story” – below is their description.
Morocco is joining three other Arab nations in establishing diplomatic ties with Israel. The Trump administration negotiated the four deals in what many are describing as a Quid Pro Quo style.
In the case of Morocco, normalisation came in exchange of a U-S proclamation of sovereignty.
The outgoing U.S. president recognised the Kingdom of Morocco’s claim over the Western Sahara – fought over for decades by Morocco and the pro-indendence Polisario Front.
In one announcement he automatically sidelined the United Nations’ efforts to resolve the dispute in that region.
But how does this boost Morocco’s claim to this territory?
