For the United States, Morocco is a partner and great ally not only in the region, but also in the entire African continent, the American official told the press after his talks with the Minister Delegate to the Head of Government, in charge the National Defense Administration, Abdeltif Loudyi, and with Lieutenant General, Inspector General of the Royal Armed Forces and Commander of the South Zone, Belkhir El Farouk. He highlighted the depth of relations between the two countries for over two centuries, expressing his country’s willingness to consolidate and expand these relations with the Kingdom, which was the first country to recognize the independence of the United States, he said.
