Tehran-Rabat Ties Back to Normal

Tehran-Rabat Ties Back to Normal

Morocco has appointed an ambassador to Iran in a sign of improved political relations between the two countries after almost seven years of estrangement. In a ceremony in the Moroccan city of Casablanca on Thursday, King Mohammed VI named Hassan Hami as the North African country’s ambassador in Tehran, Press TV reported. Hami had previously served as Morocco’s envoy to Azerbaijan. Relations between Iran and Morocco were severed in 2009 following a series of disputes over regional issues. However, senior officials of the two countries have been in consultation and coordination with each other to take measures to normalize ties. Iran officially appointed Mohammad Taqi Moayyed, a career diplomat who had previously served in Tunisia, the Netherlands and Greece, as its new ambassador to Morocco. He submitted his credentials to Morocco’s king in January 2015. Rabat opened diplomatic channels with Tehran last year. Morocco’s Foreign Minister Salaheddine Mezouar expressed his country’s determination in November to appoint an ambassador to Iran.
