PERSISMA – British e-paper “Middle-East Online” highlighted the strong support by Washington to reforms carried out by the Kingdom during the visit made by US secretary of state John Kerry on April 3-4 to Morocco.

During this visit, the US official hailed the reforms initiated by Morocco and its efforts to strengthen regional security and stability, said the electronic paper.


Morocco has a leading role in the region and the United States stands by the Kingdom on this path, said Kerry at the end of his stay in Morocco, during which he co-chaired with the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation Salaheddine Mezouar, the second session of the Morocco-USA Strategic Dialogue.

“The 18 agreements signed by Morocco and Mali show that the Kingdom takes great interest in the security and prosperity of this region,” said the British newspaper quoting Kerry, recalling that these agreements were concluded at a Royal tour in West Africa.

This session, themed “strengthening solid cooperation ties between the two countries”, is an occasion for both parties to promote their partnership in the political, economic, social, educational and cultural fields, said a statement by the foreign affairs ministry.

The meeting will open new horizons in bilateral ties, in keeping with recommendations outlined in the joint communiqué adopted following the summit talks held in November 2013 in Washington between HM King Mohammed VI and US president Barack Obama.

After the strategic dialog first session held in September 2012, the second session comes to illustrate the excellent friendship and longstanding relations binding the two countries that share the same values and same interests.

The session will also be an opportunity to deepen political consultation on bilateral, regional and international issues.

Announcing last week the visit by Kerry to the Kingdom, the US state department underlined that “this dialogue, launched in September 2012, underscores our ongoing close cooperation with Morocco and will focus on political affairs, economic and security cooperation, and educational and cultural issues.”
