Israel and Morocco agreed on Thursday to normalise relations in a deal brokered with the help of the United States, making Morocco the fourth Arab country to set aside hostilities with Israel in the past four months. Al Jazeera reports that as part of the agreement, US President Donald Trump agreed to recognise Morocco’s sovereignty over the Western Sahara, where there has been a decades-old territorial dispute with Morocco pitted against the Algeria-backed Polisario Front, a breakaway movement that seeks to establish an independent state in the territory. Trump’s recognition puts him in direct conflict with both the official African Union and United Nations stance on the territory with experts wondering whether incoming President Joe Biden will affirm the decision or have to take the decision to reverse it.
