President Donald J. Trump is celebrating. Today he signed a proclamation recognizing Moroccan sovereignty over the West Sahara region. The agreement adds to Trump’s Mideast legacy.
Another HISTORIC breakthrough today! Our two GREAT friends Israel and the Kingdom of Morocco have agreed to full diplomatic relations – a massive breakthrough for peace in the Middle East!

The new deal with Morocco paves the way for the country to make peace with Israel, which is politically referred to as “normalizing relations.” The progress marks the fourth Arab-Israel agreement in four months.
President Trump tweeted that it’s only fitting for the U.S. to recognize Morocco’s sovereignty over Western Sahara; knowing that the country recognized the sovereignty of the U.S. in 1777.
“As of today, the United States recognizes Moroccan sovereignty over the entire Western Sahara territory and reaffirms its 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,” states the official proclamation from The White House. “The United States believes that an independent Sahrawi State is not a realistic option for resolving the conflict and that genuine autonomy under Moroccan sovereignty is the only feasible solution.”
