Fez – On the occasion of the 14th anniversary of the Throne Day, a day held in honor of the king’s ascension to the throne, the American Secretary of State John Kerry issued a press statement congratulating king Mohamed VI and the Moroccan people.
“On behalf of President Obama and the American people, I offer warm wishes to King Mohammed VI and the Moroccan people as you celebrate your national day this July 30” Said John Kerry. In his statement, the US official highlighted the long friendship and diplomatic relations between Morocco and the United States, expressing at the same time pride at such enduring relationship.
“When Morocco granted American merchant ships safe passage after the outbreak of the American Revolution, it signaled the beginning of a strong and enduring friendship. We are also proud that the Moroccan city of Tangier is home to our oldest diplomatic property in the world,” said Mr. John Kerry.
John Kerry also praised Morocco’s cooperation after “more than 225 years of friendship and peace” to work together “to expand trade, promote stability in the region, and enhance mutual understanding between our nations.” The US official expressed his intention to push this relationship ahead for the common good of the two nations. “We look forward to building on our long history of relations as we work together to advance common goals,” Mr. John Kerry said.
Morocco was the 1st country to recognize the independence of the United States of America in 1777. The U.S-Morocco Peace and Friendship Treaty, ratified in 1787, is the longest unbroken treaty to which the United States is party.
