The two leaders noted “a broad convergence” in their views on the topics discussed, the statement said.
The two heads of state hailed the excellent relations existing between Morocco and France and voiced their shared resolve to strengthen these relations in all areas, including political, security, economic and cultural.
The richness, density and vitality of Moroccan-French exceptional partnership reflect the solid foundation of a strategic relationship based on trust, mutual respect and fruitful cooperation in the service of the interests of both countries, the statement noted, adding that the Sovereign reiterated his invitation to President Macron to pay a state visit to Morocco.
