US Senators highlight Morocco’s continued regional leadership for peace
Seven members of the US congressional delegation, including members of the Democratic and Republican parties, highlighted Friday in Rabat the Kingdom’s ongoing regional leadership in favor of peace in North Africa and throughout Africa under the wise leadership of HM King Mohammed VI.
Following discussions with Minister of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation, and Moroccans Living Abroad Nasser Bourita, Oklahoma Republican Senator James Lankford stated, “Our interest in the days ahead is to continue to work for peace in this region, given Morocco’s continued leadership in North Africa and across Africa as a whole.”
Mr. Lankford praised the more than 200-year-old friendship between Morocco and the United States of America and emphasized that his nation was eager to deepen these ties in the years to come.
In a similar vein, the senator stated that the delegation’s visit will give him the opportunity to meet with Moroccan officials and gain their better knowledge in order to forge long-lasting friendships.
Meanwhile, the Democratic Senator from Nevada, Jacky Rosen, said the purpose of this visit is to examine ways to strengthen peace and prosperity in the region with the help of Morocco, expressing the willingness of the United States to deepen and consolidate the partnership with the Kingdom.
The delegation from the American Congress had a discussion about the special ties between Morocco and the United States on Friday with the head of state, Aziz Akhannouch, based on a strong, ambitious, and multifaceted partnership.
