TEHRAN (Dispatches) – Iran on Saturday rejected "baseless” accusations by the Moroccan government against Tehran in a video call to the annual conference of notorious pro-Israeli group America Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC).
 In his address on Thursday, Moroccan Foreign Minister Nasser Bourita claimed that Iran was working through its "proxies” to destabilize North and West Africa.  
"Because of its inability to resolve its own regional problems, the government of Morocco has voiced support for the criminal Zionist regime and has once again repeated its false and baseless allegations against the Islamic Republic of Iran,” Foreign Ministry spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh said.  
The accusations, he said, only help American and Israeli plots in the region and work against the proponents of the Palestinian cause.
"It is regrettable that the Moroccan government as the current chair of the Al-Quds Committee (of the Organization of the Islamic Cooperation), at a time that the Islamic world needs unity more than ever, is diverting attention from the Islamic world’s main issue, which is confronting encroachment on the Al-Aqsa

Mosque and defending the rights of Palestinians,” Khatibzadeh said.
Morocco and the occupying regime of Israel normalized relations under a U.S. campaign which began in August.
The normalization agreements between the Zionist regime and four Arab countries have sparked outrage among the Palestinians who view them as a stab in their back and a betrayal of their cause.
The Moroccan government recalled on Thursday its ambassador to Berlin for consultation, amid tensions with Germany regarding Morocco’s Western Sahara regional conflict with the pro-independence Polisario Front.
"Germany has accumulated hostile stances that violate the high interests of the Kingdom,” the Moroccan Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
Morocco annexed the vast Western Sahara region, a former Spanish colony, in 1975 and has ever since been in conflict with the Algeria-backed Polisario Front, a movement that seeks to establish an independent state in the territory and end Morocco’s presence there.
The West African country is currently in control of 80 percent of the region, including its phosphate deposits and fishing waters.
