Rabat – Foreign Minister Salaheddine Mezouar said that preparations are underway for a summit that will bring together King Mohammed VI and the Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi.
“We agreed with my Egyptian counterpart that the summit will take place in June, and we’re currently working on this,” Mezouar has announced at a press conference held on the sidelines of the Crans Montana Forum, which kicked off Friday in the southern city of Dakhla.
The Moroccan chief diplomat added that the two countries are working to increase coordination to the level of “advanced partnership”.
“Major steps have been taken between Morocco and Egypt after the last visit of Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shokri to Morocco,” Mezouar was quoted as saying.
“We are working on a number of important subjects that we will unveil during the summit between the Moroccan monarch and the Egyptian president,” he added.
Last January, Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shokri visited the kingdom and delivered an invitation from the Egyptian president al-Sisi to visit Egypt.
The visit came in the wake of a diplomatic crisis between the two countries sparked after Moroccan state media described the new Egyptian President al Sisi as the “leader of a coup”.
