Chinese President Receives Moroccan Head of Government

Chinese president Xi Jinping received, on Wednesday at Beijing's Great Hall of the People, head of government Saâd Eddine El Othmani, who handed him a written message from HM King Mohammed VI.

The royal message, which reiterates the Kingdom of Morocco's commitment to developing strategic cooperation with the People's Republic of China, includes an invitation from the Sovereign to the Chinese president to visit Morocco, El Othmani told the press.

At the audience, held on the sidelines of the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation (3-4 September), the Chinese head of State had reiterated his country's commitment to supporting the issue of Morocco's territorial integrity and preserving its distinguished relations with the Kingdom, while stressing the need to step up efforts to further promote these links, the head of government noted.

The meeting was an opportunity to highlight the People's Republic of China's commitment to supporting the issue of national unity and the territorial integrity of the Kingdom "both as part of bilateral relations and at the international level", he said, noting that Xi Jinping had praised, on this occasion, Morocco's position in support of his country's national unity.

The head of government also highlighted the Chinese president's interest in the African policy of HM the king and his concern to develop Chinese-Moroccan-African tripartite cooperation to support development on the continent.
