During this visit, the King will hold talks with Russian President Vladimir Poutine, the ministry underlined in a statement, adding that the two Heads of State will chair signing ceremony of several bilateral agreements.
On this occasion, King Mohammed VI will also meet with several high ranking Russian officials.
This royal visit is part of the framework of reinforcing strategic partnership between the Kingdom of Morocco and the Russian Federation.
While the stated purpose of the visit is to strengthen economic and political ties between the two countries, analysts say the timing of the visit signals that King Mohammed VI will seek to secure Moscow’s support for Morocco’s position on the Western Sahara conflict and its autonomy plan presented to the Security Council in 2007.
