A Qatari official met with Morocco’s head of government in March and told him that Qatar has special respect for Morocco and King Mohammed VI.
Rabat – Head of Government Saad Eddine El Othmani met Qatari Attorney General Ali Bin Fetais Al Marri, with whom he discussed how to forge more solid bilateral cooperation in a meeting in Rabat on Wednesday.
During his visit, the Qatari official commended the “distinguished” position of Morocco within the Arab world.
He also applauded Morocco’s support of the UN-led initiatives in the area of law enforcement. El Othmani’s talk also focused on cooperation against corruption.
Al Marri also met Morocco’s Minister of Justice Mohamed Aujjar. During the meeting, both officials discussed ways to improve judicial cooperation.
Aujjar told the press that both Qatar and Morocco are pledging to solidify their cooperation.
In March, El Othmani received the speaker of the Qatari Advisory Council, Ahmed bin Abdullah bin Zaid Al Mahmoud, who expressed Qatar’s satisfaction with its diplomatic ties with Morocco.
Qatar and Morocco maintain strong diplomatic ties because the Gulf country holds special respect for the North African country, which maintained relations during Qatar’s Gulf crisis with the Saudi coalition.
Qatar highly appreciated Morocco’s neutrality in the Gulf crisis when the Saudi coalition enforced a hard blockade on it.
King Mohammed VI also ordered the government to offer humanitarian assistance to the Gulf country during the crisis.
