The Moroccan Foreign Minister, Nasser Bourita, made an official visit to Brazil on Thursday (13). The visit is part of Rabat’s strategy to strengthen diplomatic ties with Latin America.
In Brasilia, Chancellor Nasser Bourita was received by the Brazilian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Ambassador Ernesto Araújo, at a working meeting. On the occasion, the two discussed the negotiations for the beginning of negotiations of a free trade agreement between Mercosur and Morocco.
Bourita’s visit to Brazil comes after the visit of Moroccan Prime Minister Saadedini El-Othmani to the inauguration of President Jair Bolsonaro.
“The historical depth and the quality of the relations between Morocco and Brazil predispose us to design an even more ambitious partnership, adapted to the opportunities and demands of the 21st century,” Bourita told Correio Braziliense.
“Morocco is so satisfied with the level reached in its relations with Brazil and ambitious for the strengthening of these relations. The relationship is serene, constant and solid. Brazil is the third largest customer in Morocco, which is among Brazil’s main economic partners on the Arab and African levels”, ends.
Chile, the Dominican Republic and Suriname were also visited during the four-day tour that Bourita made this week for America.
