Acar said her country does not recognize any separatist entity in southern Morocco making the position of her country clear once and for all.
The remarks were made during talks with foreign minister Nasser Bourita. The Lebanese official voiced gratitude to Morocco for its lofty gestures in support of the Lebanese people.

Bourita, for his part, said Morocco was ready to help Lebanon economically and politically to safeguard its unity and stay at bay from foreign interferences in a difficult regional context.
Morocco hopes that all the constituents of Lebanon will come to terms in order to form a government of national unity, said Bourita.
