Morocco-Rwanda: A Successful Model of South-South Cooperation
The first meeting of the Morocco-Rwanda High Joint Committee, which was crowned Tuesday with the signing in Rabat of twelve cooperation agreements, lays out a successful model of South-South cooperation, said Rwanda’s Foreign Minister Dr. Richard Sezibera.
“The relations between the two African countries are gaining momentum day after day and set the example of a successful South-South cooperation thanks to the far-sighted vision of the Heads of state of the two countries,” stressed Mr. Sezibera who co-chaired the first meeting of the High Joint Committee with his Moroccan counterpart Nasser Bourita.
The 12 agreements sealed on this occasion aim to boost bilateral cooperation in trade, industry, environment, sustainable development, justice, tourism, education and training of young diplomats.
In press statements made during his trip to Rabat, Rwanda’s top diplomat lauded the return of Morocco to the African Union, saying that the Pan-African organization has become more dynamic since the North African Kingdom rejoined its African institutional family.
King Mohammed VI and President Paul Kagame share a common vision for the development of the continent, and for building a strong, dignified and confident Africa.
Relations between Morocco and Rwanda witnessed a turning point after the visits by President Paul Kagame to Morocco in June 2016 and by King Mohammed VI to Rwanda in October of the same year.
The two leaders have not only set the course for bilateral relations, but also laid down an approach based on rigor, results and fulfillment of commitments.
