HM The King's Visit To USA, Occasion To Highlight American Support For Morocco’s Democratic Reforms, White House

 The visit that HM King Mohammed VI will pay, on November 22, 2013, to the USA at the invitation of American president Barack Obama, will be an occasion to highlight American support for Morocco’s democratic and economic reforms, the White House said.

President Obama looks forward to discussing a range of issues of mutual interest with King Mohammed VI, including support for Morocco’s democratic and economic reforms, said spokesperson of the White House Jay Carney in a statement. 

 This visit will highlight the long-standing friendship between the United States and Morocco and strengthen our strategic partnership, it added.

 "This visit is also an opportunity to increase our cooperation on addressing regional challenges, including countering violent extremism, supporting democratic transitions, and promoting economic development in the Middle East and Africa," it noted.
