Israeli Foreign Minister Yair Lapid will be traveling to Morocco for an official visit on August 11-12, Israeli media reported on Wednesday.
The trip will be the first for an Israeli foreign minister.
Lapid will officially open up the Israeli diplomatic mission in the African country.
The announcement came days after the first direct commercial flights between the Zionist entity and Morocco took off, seven months after the two sides normalized diplomatic relations in a US-brokered deal.
While Tel Aviv and Rabat did not in the past have full relations, they maintained close official ties until Morocco suspended them with the outbreak of the Second Intifada in 2000.
An Israeli diplomatic source said Sunday that the ties with the North African kingdom “will turn into full diplomatic relations,” Times of Israel reported.
Earlier this month, Lapid invited his Moroccan counterpart, Nasser Bourita, to visit the Zionist entity.
In late June, Lapid made a to the United Arab Emirates to open the Israeli embassy in Abu Dhabi and a consulate in Dubai.
