Morocco, Israel normalisation is ‘betrayal’ of Palestine – Iranian official

Iran's Deputy Foreign Minister Amir-Abdollahian speaks during news conference in Moscow

DUBAI (Reuters) – Morocco’s normalisation of relations with Israel is a betrayal and a stab in the back of Palestine, Hossein Amir-Abdollahian, an adviser to Iran’s parliamentary speaker, said on Friday.

Israel and Morocco agreed on Thursday to normalise relations in a deal brokered with U.S. help, making Morocco the fourth Arab country to set aside hostilities with Israel in the past four months.
