Morocco expresses deep concern over Jerusalem decision, summons U.S. charge d'affaires

RABAT (Reuters) - Morocco summoned the U.S. charge d’affaires to express its deep concern over the U.S. decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, state news agency MAP said on Wednesday.

Morocco’s foreign minister “reiterated the constant support and full solidarity of the Kingdom of Morocco towards the Palestinian people so that they can recover their legitimate rights,” a statement carried by MAP said.
