King Abdullah II’s last visit to Morocco was on March 23, 2017.
Rabat – King Abdullah II of Jordan will spend a two-day visit in Morocco at the invitation of King Mohammed VI, March 27-28.
The Ministry of the Royal Household, Protocol and Chancellery said that King Mohammed VI would hold official talks with his royal guest.
Two years have passed since King Abdullah II visited Morocco and discussed with King Mohammed VI political developments in the Arab world and the terrorist challenges the region faces.
The two heads of state also agreed on the importance of mobilizing the international community to find solutions to Middle Eastern conflicts, including Palestine.
King Abdullah II was due to arrive in Romania Monday but he canceled the visit on Monday in protest against Romanian Prime Minister Viorica Dancila’s plan to move Romania’s embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
On Sunday, Dancila said she was “pleased to announce” that Romania would “move our embassy to Jerusalem, the capital of the State of Israel.” She made the announcement at a conference in Washington, D.C., held by the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), the most prominent and influential pro-Israel lobbying group in the United States.
Romanian President Klaus Lohannis rejected the Dancila’s announcement, saying that he is the only one who has the authority to do so.
According to Jordan News Agency (Petra), the Jordanian sovereign was supposed to participate in the Aqaba Meetings, which Romania had been planning to host in partnership with Jordan.
A Jordanian-Romanian Business Forum had been also planned with the participation of private sector representatives from both countries.
The agency also reported that the Jordanian and Romanian governments had planned to sign one agreement, two memorandums of understanding, and a cooperation program.
On Monday, Trump signed a proclamation to recognize Israel’s authority over the Golan Heights, a territory Israel seized from Syria in 1967. Trump’s decision received applause from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who commended the US for its decision at a joint press conference with Trump.
Trump has been a close ally of Benjamin Netanyahu and recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital in 2017. Since then, a number of other countries followed suit, moving their embassies to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv.
Both King Mohammed VI and King Abdullah of Jordan rejected Trump’s decision, emphasizing the status of the city as the future capital of the Palestinian state.
