Morocco’s House of Councillors Speaker cancels visit to Israel due to health emergency
Speaker of the House of Councilors Enaam Mayara cancelled his visit to the Knesset after falling ill in Jordan, a joint statement said.
Mayara suffered a medical emergency while in Amman and had to be admitted to a Jordanian hospital last night, said a joint statement.
Mayara was advised by doctors after medical examination to cancel his visit to the Knesset, it said.
The Knesset and the Moroccan House of Councillors agreed that when the Speaker returns to Morocco, the two parties will set a new date for his visit, the statement added.
“I am sorry that due to a medical emergency, I was prevented from attending the Knesset. I know that a lot of effort has been put into the preparations for my visit, and I would like to express my appreciation to all partners. Also: upon my return to Morocco, my office will coordinate a new date for the visit,” Mayara was quoted in the statement as saying.
Last June, Knesset Speaker Amir Ohana visited Rabat and the Moroccan parliament’s two houses.
Ohana while wishing Mayara recovery expressed satisfaction at the growing ties between the two countries.
