Sahara: Brazil hails Morocco’s “serious & credible” efforts for lasting settlement
The government of Brazil has praised the “serious and credible” efforts made by Morocco for a lasting resolution of the Sahara regional conflict.
The remarks were made by Brazil’s foreign minister Carlos Alberto Franco França during a phone talk Monday with his Moroccan peer Nasser.
Carlos Alberto also reaffirmed his country’s support for the UN-led process engaged to reach a fair, realistic and pragmatic solution to the Sahara dispute.
The two ministers discussed political dialogue and economic cooperation as well as the multidimensional strategic partnership to be set up by the two countries.
They also reviewed several regional and international issues of common interest.
Bourita has availed this opportunity to congratulate Brazil for its election as a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council for the period 2022-2023.
The Brazilian ministry of foreign Affairs has released a statement expressing its “commitment to deepen dialogue and strengthen the strategic partnership with Morocco, a country which promotes peace, security and religious tolerance”.
Morocco’s “balanced positions have contributed to building consensus and the peaceful resolution of conflicts and crises”, underlined the statement.
It also said that talks between the two ministers covered the consolidation and diversification of economic partnership as bilateral trade reached last year $1.78 billion.
Morocco is the third most important market for Brazilian agricultural products in Africa and North Africa and is an important destination for Brazilian industrial exports.
