Algeria FM: 'Morocco-Israel defence deal a dirty military alliance'

Algeria's Foreign Minister Ramtane Lamamra described the Moroccan-Israeli defence deal as a dirty military alliance, Quds Press reported.

Lamamra delivered his remarks during the 8th High-Level Seminar on Peace and Security in Africa on Thursday in Oran, Algeria.


"Every step taken by the Moroccan authorities related to this dirty alliance distances it more from Algeria and its people," he asserted.


The Morocco-Israel alliance, Lamamra said: "Reflects the similarity between two expansionist regional powers pushed by ignoring their victims who are being deprived of their inalienable rights."


Morocco and Israel signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) on security and intelligence cooperation during a visit by Israeli Defence Minister Benny Gantz to Morocco.


Following the signing of the Oslo Peace Accords in 1993, between the Palestine Liberation Organisation (PLO) and Israel, Morocco and Israel established diplomatic relations. However, ties were cut in 2000, at the start of the second Palestinian Intifada.


In September 2020, Morocco resumed its relations with Israel as part of the US-sponsored Abraham Accords, which saw several Arab states initiating relations with Israel.
