Algeria-Morocco crisis: Israeli ambassador in Rabat adds his two cents


The accredited Israeli ambassador to Morocco, David Govrin, brings more water to the mills of Algerian officials and media outlets shooting at Moroccan-Israeli relations. In an interview with Israeli news channel i24NEWS, the diplomat was invited to give his opinion on the Moroccan-Algerian crisis.

Gorvin initially played the card of caution, stressing that the Hebrew state “does not want to interfere in this type of dispute”, before letting go that “it is very clear that it is about an attempt by the Algerian regime to try to divert attention from domestic problems ”.

Words which are reminiscent of the concerns expressed on August 13 in Casablanca by the Israeli Foreign Minister, Yaïr Lapid: “We share a certain concern about the role of the Algerian state in the region, which is is close to Iran and is currently campaigning against Israel’s admission to the African Union as an observer. ”. Statements condemned by the department of Lamamra in a press release published on August 15.

Last week Algeria announced that it had foiled a “plot” to undermine its stability. It would be the work of a “terrorist organization (…) espousing the separatist tendency”, with the complicity of “the Zionist entity and a state in North Africa”, in allusion to Morocco.

On the aspect of Israeli-Moroccan relations, the ambassador praised the quality of the “social and cultural” ties forged “for decades” between his country and the kingdom. “The resumption of diplomatic relations (December 10, 2020, editor’s note) has enabled us to develop direct flights, trade, we have signed very important economic agreements. We have created working groups in various fields such as agriculture and industry. These working groups are a mechanism that allows us to strengthen bilateral relations, ”he said.
