Morocco, Serbia Ink Two Agreements, Agree to Hold 2nd Joint Committee Before End of Year
Morocco and Serbia inked, Wednesday in Rabat, two cooperation agreements related to the fields of diplomatic training and culture and agreed to hold in the Kingdom the 2nd session of their joint committee before the end of the current year.

These agreements were signed by Foreign Minister Nasser Bourita and his Serbian counterpart Ivica Dacic who is on a working visit to the Kingdom.

They are: a memorandum of cooperation between the Moroccan Academy of Diplomatic Studies and the Diplomatic Academy of the Foreign Ministry of the Republic of Serbia, and a program of cooperation in the fields of culture, higher education, scientific research, education, communication, media, youth and sport for the years 2018, 2019 and 2020.

In a statement to the press after his talks with the Serbian Minister, Bourita stressed that this visit was an opportunity to sign two agreements in the cultural and diplomatic training fields.

During this year, there has been a "positive momentum with Serbia" through visit exchanges, regular contacts and the organization of cultural events, he noted.

These talks were also an opportunity to agree on the holding of the second session of the Moroccan-Serbian joint committee," Bourita said, adding that the committee will be held in Morocco before the end of the current year.  

This committee will focus on economic and trade cooperation, which does not match the expectations, potential and ambition of both countries, despite the strong political relations dating back to 70 years, he said.

Bourita also said that the recently signed air agreement and the discussions on visa exemption for ordinary passports will develop tourism ties between the two countries.

Dacic said that the joint committee should be held as soon as possible, with a view to developing economic cooperation between the two countries, adding that this cooperation has great potential, particularly in the fields of agriculture, energy and new technologies.

He expressed the will of Serbia to exempt all passports from visa requirements and not make it a privilege for diplomatic representations only.

The Serbian diplomat also said that Morocco will be the guest of honour at the International Book Fair in Belgrade.
