Rabat – King Mohammed VI flew to France on a private visit, Moroccan media online outlets reported.
The monarch left Morocco on Thursday from Airport Ibn Batouta in Tangier, northern Morocco, and headed to Paris.
The King was spending his summer holidays in the northern region as it is his custom every year.
The visit is the second to France in two months. In May King Mohammed VI met with former French president François Hollande, a personal friend of his, while the country was in midst of a presidential race that saw Emmanuel Macron win elections.
On June 14 and 15 Macron paid a visit to Morocco where he met with the monarch and members of the royal family.
The two countries are united with a long-time friendship and trade partnership.
In recent years, with the rising threat of terrorism, security cooperation between Morocco and France has increased.
A large community of Moroccans and holders of dual nationality are living in France. Their number is estimated to be around 1 million and a falf.
