The Serbian top diplomat also stressed the importance of political and peaceful resolution of regional conflicts in line with United Nations Security Council resolutions.
”There is a momentum in Moroccan-Serbian relations”, said Ivica Dacic, underlining the two countries’ strong determination to enhance further their cooperation and friendship ties, while respecting their respective territorial integrity and national sovereignty.
“We have agreed to continue our coordination at international organizations and fora”, added the Serbian minister of Foreign Affairs, saying Rabat and Belgrade look forward to lifting up their economic cooperation to higher levels.
For his part, Bourita said talks with his Serbian peer covered several issues related to bilateral relations, latest developments on regional and international scenes as well as the setting up of a Moroccan-Serbian business council to boost partnership in trade, investment, renewable energies, agriculture, and car industry.
The meeting was marked by the signing of a memorandum of understanding in the field of youth and sports.
Bourita’s visit to Belgrade is part of a tour to the Balkan region aimed at expanding and diversifying the Kingdom’s partners in Europe.
