Upper House Speaker, Saudi FM Hail Excellent Bilateral Relations

House of Advisors Speaker Naama Mayara on Thursday held talks with H.H. Prince Faisal bin Farhan bin Abdullah Al Saud, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, currently on a working visit to Morocco. These talks were an opportunity to discuss the history of excellent bilateral relations between the two sisterly countries, which are based on a solid foundation of sincere ties of friendship between HM King Mohammed VI and his brother, Custodian of the Holy Places of Islam, HM King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, reports a statement of the upper house. Mayara said he was very satisfied with the excellence of bilateral relations in all areas between the two sisterly kingdoms, under the impetus of the farsightedness of the two countries’ leaders, said the statement. The Speaker of the House of Advisors expressed his thanks to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for its noble positions on Morocco’s fair causes, including Morocco’s first-rank territorial integrity. Mayara recalled, on this register, the latest Saudi position at the meeting of the United Nations’ C-24, on the occasion of which Saudi Arabia has renewed its constant support for Morocco and its territorial integrity. He also expressed, on behalf of the House of Advisors, “the strong Moroccan support to the sovereignty of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia on its territory”, denouncing “cowardly terrorist acts targeting its security and stability” while saying he was proud of the deserved leadership position enjoyed by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in the Islamic world. For his part, the head of Saudi diplomacy, H.H. Prince Faisal bin Farhan bin Abdullah Al Saud, after welcoming the depth and strength of bilateral relations thanks to the fraternal ties between the two Sovereigns, expressed the wish to raise economic relations to the same level of excellence of political relations. The statement added that the head of Saudi diplomacy mentioned, in this regard, the existence of many investment opportunities to be explored and this, to take advantage of privileged political relations for the benefit of the two brotherly peoples, in accordance with the vision of the leaders of the two countries that defines the ultimate objectives of their bilateral cooperation. The Saudi Minister of Foreign Affairs also stressed that the holding of the 13th session of the Moroccan-Saudi Joint Committee which he co-chaired Thursday in Rabat alongside his Moroccan counterpart, Nasser Bourita, represents “a step in the right direction for economic relations even more promising,” stressing the need to involve effectively the private sector in this dynamic growth.
