Creation in Mexico City of a Friendship Group with Morocco to Develop Bilateral Cooperation

A friendship group with Morocco made up of Mexican personalities from various backgrounds has been set up in Mexico City with the aim of strengthening cooperation between the two countries.

The creation of this friendship group, officially set up Friday during a reception at the embassy of the Kingdom in Mexico City, aims to strengthen rapprochement between the two countries and the exchange of information and experiences in various areas, as well as to promote dialogue, cooperation and consultation on issues of common interest, said a statement from the diplomatic representation of Morocco in Mexico City.

This group of personalities from the political, economic, academic and cultural circles is chaired by Professor Armando Barriguete, former advisor to the Mexican government, member of the Mexican National Academy of Medicine.

Speaking on this occasion, Barriguete underlined that the members of the group intend to contribute to the rapprochement between the two countries, particularly through the organization of meetings, exchanges and regular consultations with their Moroccan counterparts.

Visits to the Kingdom to develop joint cooperation projects are also planned as soon as the health situation improves, he said, explaining that the new structure is intended to be a vector for prospecting and generating ideas, proposals and projects capable of enabling the two countries to exploit their full potential for joint cooperation.

"This group will also be called upon to formulate an annual report that would include proposals to the Moroccan and Mexican governments in order to further strengthen bilateral relations for the benefit of our two nations", he pointed out, as quoted in the press release.

For his part, the Moroccan Ambassador in Mexico City, Abdelfattah Lebbar, expressed the Kingdom's determination and commitment to continue consolidating its multilateral relations with Mexico, as a priority of the external action deployed in Latin America and in the Caribbean, so as to raise them to the level of a strategic partnership.
