Rabat – Prince Abdulaziz bin Saud bin Nayef, the Saudi interior minister arrived in Morocco Tuesday, October 9, for an official visit.
The Moroccan interior minister, Abedelouafi Laftit, received Prince Abdulaziz at the Rabat-Sale airport, the Saudi newspaper Okaz reported.
Prince Abdulaziz bin Saud is accompanied on his visit by high-ranking security officials.
The state-run Saudi Press Agency has not revealed any details about Prince Abdulaziz’s agenda.
The current visit follows tensions between the two kingdoms. A Saudi sport official criticized Morocco’s request for support in its bid to host the 2026 FIFA World Cup. In one tweet, Turki al-Sheikh wrote, “If we were asked for support, we would firstly look at what serves Saudi Arabia’s best interest.”
Also meeting the prince at the airport were the wali (governor) of the Rabat-Sale-Kenitra region, Mohamed Mhidia, and a Saudi official.
