Morocco Acknowledges Jordon’s Role In Strengthening Palestinian Democracy
Morocco has admitted that Jordon indeed has a central role to play when it comes to solving the Israel-Palestinian conflict. Morocco shares close cordial relations with Jordon. The latter is gradually making a place for itself in world map of politics and as a fair mediator amongst Middle Eastern countries.
Jordon’s role has become prominent as it has shown evident work in handling power crises for those living in the West Bank. It has normalized its relations like Morocco with Israel but does not leave a stone unturned as it has to point out the wrongdoing against Palestinians.
Apart from the fact that Morocco believes in Jordanian way of doing things, both leaderships have a lot in common. Having met with Jordanian counterpart Ayman al-Safadi in Amman, the Moroccan Foreign Affairs Minister Nasser Bourita admitted that they “share with Jordan the same vision about the bilateral, regional and international issue.

“Morocco supports Jordan’s central role regarding the Palestinian cause and the role of his majesty King Abdullah regarding the Islamic religious sites in the city of Jerusalem,” he said. Bourita has further added that Morocco supports the two-state solution to end the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, by establishing an independent Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its capital on the June 1967 borders.
Mr Bourita has also referred to Jordan’s custodianship over Jerusalem’s Al Aqsa Mosque, a claim that dates to the 1920s, when Palestinian notables gave Hussein bin Ali, the Sharif of Makkah and a great grandfather of Jordan’s King Abdullah, custodianship over the site. King Mohammed of Morocco “supports this role and always calls for co-ordinating with Jordan in everything concerning the Palestinian cause, especially the Islamic religious sites in this city,” Mr Bourita said.
“We work together with Jordan to support the Jerusalemites and in preserving the Arab-Islamic identity of Jerusalem,” he said.
