Here is a readout on Trump’s call with King Mohammed VI of Morocco.
From the White House:
Today, President Trump spoke with his Majesty King Mohammed VI of Morocco.
The US -Morocco friendship is rooted in our shared belief in the promise of peace, stability, and economic opportunity and has endured since Morocco became the first country to recognize the United States in 1777. The President reaffirmed his support for Morocco’s serious, credible, and realistic autonomy proposal as the only basis for a just and lasting solution to the dispute over the Western Sahara territory, and as such, the President recognized Moroccan sovereignty over the entire Western Sahara territory.
The leaders also discussed cooperation in the fight against the coronavirus, ways to minimize its economic impact, and common interests in critical regional issues. During the conversation, the King agreed to resume diplomatic relations between Morocco and Israel and expand economic and cultural cooperation to advance regional stability. The President thanked His Majesty for his leadership and vision and recognized the strong bonds of friendship that have long existed between the people and governments of Morocco and the United States.
