Kushner’s second visit to Morocco lasted for one day.
Rabat – Spokesperson of the US Embassy in Morocco, Joshua Wagner, has confirmed the second visit of Donald Trump’s adviser, Jared Kushner, to Morocco.
The spokesperson said that the US officials were “officially received by the Moroccan government.”
“Kushner held an official meeting with members of the Moroccan government, before leaving the kingdom on Friday [August 2nd],” added Wagner.
On August 2, the Jerusalem Post reported that Kushner’s agenda for his visit to Morocco also included meetings with Abu Dhabi’s Crown Prince Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed (MBZ) and Oman’s Minister Responsible for Foreign Affairs Yusuf bin Alazi bin Abdulah in Morocco.
Morocco’s official news agency Maghreb Arab Press (MAP) has not published a statement on Kushner’s latest visit to Morocco, nor his meeting with the MBZ and Oman’s foreign minister.
Kushner’s visit is part of his second Middle East tour to seek support for the US economic project, a part of the Middle East peace plan, otherwise known as the Deal of the Century.
While Kushner is seeking support for the plan, Palestine refuses mediation from the US as Trump’s administration supports Israeli actions.
On June 23, thousands of Moroccan citizens also gathered to reject the Deal of the Century in a protest.
The protesters marched in Rabat to denounce any maneuvers against the Palestinian cause and the legitimate rights of Palestinians.
The Moroccan government also supports the Palestinian cause, emphasizing that its position on Palestine is constant.
