Morocco and Germany agreed on Thursday in Berlin to launch their Multidimensional Strategic Dialogue, which will serve as a basis for moving forward in bilateral relations and strengthen coherence between the different areas of bilateral cooperation. The announcement came at the end of a meeting between Minister of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation and Moroccan Expatriates, Nasser Bourita, who is on a working visit to Germany, and Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Federal Republic of Germany, Annalena Baerbock. Bourita’s visit to Germany is part of the implementation of the Strategic Dialogue established between the two countries in the joint declaration adopted on the occasion of Baerbock’s visit to Morocco on August 25, 2022. The Strategic Dialogue is scheduled to take place once every two years, alternately in Morocco and Germany, under the chairmanship of the Foreign Ministers of both countries. The establishment of this Strategic Dialogue is part of the two countries’ shared commitment to strengthening dialogue, political, economic, cultural and interpersonal relations, promoting democracy, the rule of law and good governance, developing trade and investment, and cooperating on climate policy, biodiversity policy and green energy solutions. This Strategic Dialogue will be based on shared values and mutual respect, with the aim of consolidating the principles and foundations of relations between Morocco and Germany, with a view to preserving and strengthening the priority interests of both countries.
