The phone call, at the initiative of the Moroccan Monarch, provided an opportunity “to underline the strong historical relations binding the two brotherly Maghreb countries, and to agree on an exchange of visits, shortly, between the two Heads of State,” says the communiqué.
King Mohammed VI had dispatched last October the speakers of the two Chambers of the Moroccan Parliament to represent him at the inauguration ceremony of the Tunisian President.
President Kaïs Saïed had expressed appreciation of the Monarch’s initiative and highlighted the depth and strength of the historical ties between the two countries, the Tunisian Presidency had then said in a statement, after the Tunisian Head of State met the Moroccan officials.
He had also reaffirmed Tunisia’s commitment to further strengthen its relations with Morocco by exploring new approaches and conceptions of cooperation in all areas in order to meet the different challenges and realize the aspirations of the two brotherly peoples for further cooperation, integration and solidarity, the Presidency had said.
The royal envoys on their part emphasized the importance of expanding bilateral relations and taking greater advantage of the existing opportunities for cooperation and partnership between the two countries.
Kaïs Saïed is the second freely-elected president of Tunisia after late president Beji Caid Essebsi, who became president in 2014.
