Casablanca – U.S. Ambassador to Morocco Dwight L. Bush released a statement on Tuesday, November 8 to express the importance of the bond between the United States and Morocco ahead of the U.S. presidential election.
“Morocco and the United States are strong partners and will continue to be because we have a long history and a deep, enduring friendship,” Bush said in a statement sent to Morocco World News.
“The areas of cooperation between our countries, whether it’s fighting terrorism, advancing trade and entrepreneurship, or improving the access to education, have a firm foundation,” he added.
On what can be expected following the results of the election, Bush emphasized the embassy’s commitment to strengthening cooperation between the two nations, saying, “While I can’t speak to the specific priorities of the next administration, I can assure you that, as an Embassy, we will continue our work here to promote democratic values, and strengthen cooperation between our countries.”
“My focus and the focus of my staff of career diplomats and public servants will be to ensure that the new administration understands the strength and importance of our bilateral relations to ensure a smooth and efficient transition,” he continued.
While Dwight Bush made no mention of who he hopes to see as President, a poll conducted by the Arab Center for Research and Politics revealed that 78 percent of Moroccans would prefer Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump as next U.S. President. Another poll by the Moroccan Daily Akhbar Al Youm also revealed that Morocco was the Arab country most supportive of Clinton.
