IDF Chief of Staff Aviv Kochavi will next week pay a visit Morocco, an Arab country in which no Chief of Staff has paid an official visit to date, it was cleared for publication on Saturday night.

On Friday, it was published that Kochavi would next week pay a visit to an Arab country, but the identity of the country was not published until 24 hours later.

The Chief of Staff's visit to Morocco comes amid the warming of relations between the two countries since the signing of the Abraham Accords.

In March, Kochavi visited the Kingdom of Bahrain. During his visit, he met with the Secretary-General of the Supreme Defense Council and National Security Advisor, the Commander-in-Chief of the Bahrain Defense Force and the Chief of Staff of the Bahrain Defense Force, and other senior Bahraini officials.

Subsequent reports indicated that Kochavi had met the Chief of Staff of the Qatari military during his visit to Bahrain.
