MAP, Sputnik Ink Agreement to Foster Cooperation

Morocco’s News Agency (MAP) and Russian news agency Sputnik signed on Monday in Rabat an agreement to strengthen bilateral cooperation.

Signed by MAP Managing Director, Khalil Hachimi Idrissi, and Head of International Projects Center at SPUTNIK, Vasily Vladimirovich Pushkov, the agreement aims at establishing professional relations and fostering cooperation between the two agencies in Russia and Morocco.

The two parties will seek to develop bilateral cooperation in the area of information in order to strengthen cooperation between the two countries and intend to carry out projects aimed at developing the media landscape, promoting professional news coverage of cultural, social, economic, sports and political events and strengthening mutual understanding and rapprochement between the Moroccan and Russian peoples.

"This is not only a big step towards a closer cooperation between the two agencies, but also a new era of media cooperation between Russia and Morocco," Vladimirovich Pushkov said on this occasion, noting that both parties "have much to offer" as they provide news in several languages.
