Morocco: Abdeltif Loudyi Receives American Congress Delegation

Minister Delegate to the Head of Government, in charge of the National Defense Administration, Abdeltif Loudyi, received, Wednesday at the headquarters of this Administration, a delegation of the American Congress led by the chairman of the Armed Services Committee of the House of Representatives, Mike Rogers, on the sidelines of his visit to the Kingdom of Morocco.

During this meeting, which took place in the presence of the US ambassador to Rabat, the US Congressmen expressed their enthusiasm for the major reforms achieved by the Kingdom of Morocco, under the leadership of King Mohammed VI.

The U.S Congress Delegation took this opportunity to praise the level of excellence achieved by the age-old relations of friendship and cooperation between the two countries, strengthened by a strategic partnership in particular on the political, diplomatic, economic, military and security levels. The delegation members also referred to the multiple efforts and the role of the Kingdom in the service of peace and stability in the Mediterranean, Africa and the Middle East.

For his part, Loudyi reiterated the Kingdom’s willingness to expand the range of this partnership, consolidated by the signing, before King Mohammed VI, of the tripartite declaration between the United States of America, Morocco and Israel in December 2020, recognizing the sovereignty of Morocco over its Sahara.

He also welcomed the positive decisions taken by the US Congress, House of Reprersentatives and Senate, on the military cooperation of the United States with Morocco, on the occasion of the adoption of the US National Defense Budget for 2023.

M. Loudyi also stressed the importance of bilateral military cooperation and training actions as well as exchanges of experience and expertise embodied in particular by the regular holding of the multilateral military exercise “African Lion” to enhance the interoperability of the two countries’ forces.
