El Salvador to Open Embassy in Morocco (FM)

El Salvador’s Foreign Minister, Alexandra Hill Tinoco, announced Thursday in Rabat that her country will soon open an embassy in Morocco.

Speaking at a press briefing following talks with her Moroccan counterpart, Nasser Bourita, the Salvadoran official said she was "convinced" that this initiative will give strong impetus to relations between the two countries.

With a view to strengthening technical and financial cooperation, the Salvadoran top-diplomat also announced the visit of Salvadoran experts to Morocco in 2020 in order to discuss with their Moroccan counterparts the means to implement the road map, signed on June 15, 2019, in San Salvador, and to strengthen bilateral cooperation in the areas of renewable energy, agriculture, tourism, health and water, among others.

Mrs. Hill Tinoco welcomed the "large-scale reforms" undertaken by His Majesty King Mohammed VI, which make of the Kingdom of Morocco a "model of economic and social development in the region".

The Salvadoran minister said that the objective of her visit to Morocco is to consolidate the ties of friendship and cooperation between the two countries.

Morocco is a country with which "we share the same values of freedom and democracy", she pointed out, insisting on the importance of strengthening relations of brotherhood between the two friendly peoples.
