RABAT– Kuwait’s National Assembly Speaker Marzouq Al-Ghanim arrived on Wednesday in Morocco to attend an emergency meeting of speakers of Arab parliaments on developments pertaining to Jerusalem.

Upon arrival, Al-Ghanim and his accompanying delegation were received by Morocco’s deputy parliament speaker Rashid Al-Abdi, Kuwait’s Ambassador to Morocco Abdullatif Al-Yahya and members of the Kuwaiti diplomatic mission in Rabat.
