Morocco, Ukraine Resume Political Talks After Six Years Haitus

Morocco and Ukraine have resumed political dialogue six years after the two country’s last meeting.

The last discussion between both countries was in 2014 during the 15th Summit of the International Organization of la Francophonie in Dakar, Senegal.

According to a statement, on Friday, the Ukrainian Foreign Minister, Dmytro Kuleba, had a phone conversation with the Minister of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation and Moroccan Expatriates of the Kingdom of Morocco, Mr. Nasser Bourita.

The Foreign Affairs ministers noted the high potential for reviving a political dialogue between Ukraine and Morocco after a long break and agreed to hold political consultations between the two countries as soon as possible.

The ministers also exchanged invitations to pay reciprocal visits.

The parties agreed to make efforts to hold a meeting of the Intergovernmental Joint Commission on Trade, Economic, Scientific, Technical and Cultural Cooperation by the end of the year.

Kuleba highlighted the importance of increasing trade in agricultural products, attracting investment in the modernization of port infrastructure and shipbuilding.

The ministers also noted the need for comprehensive assistance and encouragement of Moroccan students to study in Ukraine.

The first and only meeting of the Intergovernmental Joint Commission on Trade, Economic, Scientific, Technical and Cultural Cooperation was held in 2009, more than 10 years ago.
