At the same time, Istiqlal issued a complaint against Morocco’s Foreign Affairs Minister, M. Guedira. accusing him of having entrusted an Arab League dossier to a Jewish aide, Robert Asseraf. According to Istiqlal, M; Guedira “wants to play the role of conciliator between the Arab states and Israel.”
