Morocco’s King Renews Resolve to Boost Strategic Cooperation with Russia
This came during the talks he held at the Royal palace in Casablanca Friday with Secretary of the Russian Security Council, Nikolaï Patrouchev, who is on a working visit to Morocco, a statement by the Royal office said.
The meeting is part of the enhanced strategic partnership sealed between the two countries during the Monarch’s state visit to Moscow last March.
The visit to Morocco of the Secretary of the Russian Security Council confirms the depth of security cooperation between the two countries, the statement said, adding that during the Friday meeting, the Sovereign extended an invitation to President Vladimir Putin to pay a state visit to Morocco.
On Thursday, Nikolaï Patrouchev held separate meetings with several senior Moroccan officials, including Minister of the Interior Mohamed Hassad and heads of Morocco’s foreign and domestic intelligence agencies, Mohammed Yassine Mansouri and Abdellatif Hammouchi.
