Croatia supports the “serious” and “credible” efforts undertaken by Morocco to find a political solution to the Sahara issue, Croatia’s vice prime minister and foreign minister Marija Pejcinovic Buric said.
Croatia has the same position as the EU on the Sahara issue, she told press following talks in Rabat with foreign minister Nasser Bourita.
She said her country welcomes the resumption of the negotiations process between the parties to the regional conflict over the Sahara, which she described as a “new momentum” that could foster regional stability and prosperity.
The Croatian official was leading a delegation including businessmen that explored ways to foster trade and cooperation in areas such as renewable energies and military industry.
The visit of the Croatian delegation (Feb.7 to 9) was marked by the signing of several cooperation agreements covering the political, economic, cultural, tourism and health areas.
The two parties also signed a military cooperation agreement establishing the general framework for bilateral relations, particularly in the fields of military training and exercises, military health, disaster management and the exchange of expertise.
