The 4th session of the Morocco-Peru bilateral consultations was held Thursday in Lima, with a view to giving a strong impetus to cooperation between the two countries.

At this meeting, which was attended by the Peruvian deputy-minister of Foreign Affairs, Hugo de Zela, Ambassador Fouad Yazourh, Director General of Bilateral Relations at the Moroccan ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation highlighted the excellent relations between Morocco and Peru.

The historic visit of HM King Mohammed VI to Lima in 2004 had provided a strong impetus to these relations, he said, adding that the two countries are willing to strengthen their bilateral relations and to build a strategic partnership, on the basis of friendship and mutual trust.

During these consultations, which took place in the presence of Morocco’s ambassador to Peru, Youssef Balla, Yazourh underlined the convergence of views between the two countries on several regional and international issues.

For his part, Gustavo Otero, Ambassador General and Director for Africa, the Middle East and the Gulf States at the Peruvian ministry of Foreign Affairs, recalled the deep friendship between Morocco and Peru, reiterating the willingness of his country to step up its rapprochement with Morocco with a view to building a fruitful and mutually beneficial partnership.

Reaffirming their commitment to the values of peaceful settlement of disputes, preservation of peace and international security and respect for the territorial integrity of the sovereign States members of the United Nations, the two parties expressed their determination to combine their efforts to further deepen the dialogue at the United Nations and at the level of the various multilateral and regional fora.
