A Romanian official canceled his visit to Morocco, after Romania’s Prime Minister Virica Dancila said, March the 24th, in Washington that her country will move its embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, local online newspaper Romania-Insider reports.

Reacting to the Romanian decision, Morocco informed the country's Senate president Calin Popescu-Tariceanu, who was expected to fly to the Kingdom, that it is not «available for meetings». This message was «transmitted through diplomatic channels», the same source said.

«The official visit of Senate president Calin Popescu-Tariceanu in the Kingdom of Morocco, supposed to take place between March 27 and 31, 2019, was postponed at the request of the Moroccan side, to be rescheduled for a later period, to be agreed upon», the Romanian Senate said.

Romania joins the list of countries who announced that they would move their Israeli embassies to Jerusalem. «I, as prime minister of Romania, and the Government I lead will move the Romanian Embassy to Jerusalem, the capital of Israel», Dancila said in a speech at the American Israel Public Affair Committee summit in the US.

For the record, The United States, Guatemala and Brazil have indeed moved their embassies in Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
