Morocco severs ties with Iran


Moroccan Minister of Foreign Affairs Nasser Bourita said on Tuesday that his country had severed ties with Tehran over alleged ties between Hezbollah and a separatist group in Western Sahara, APA reports quoting Anadolu agency.

 

Speaking to reporters in the Moroccan capital Rabat, Bourita added that his country had decided to close its embassy in Tehran and asked Iran's ambassador to leave the country.

 

Bourita said the move was due to "the engagement of the Iranian-backed Lebanese Hezbollah in a relationship with the Polisario [front] , and this threatens the security and stability of the country."
