Establishment of a mechanism for political consultations between Morocco and New Zealand

Morocco and New Zealand held on Tuesday, March 13, 2018 a new session of political consultations in Wellington, during which they decided to infuse new dynamics into their bilateral relations by signing two Memoranda of Cooperation.

These agreements which concern the establishment of a mechanism for political consultations as well as cooperation on the economic, technical and cultural levels have been signed by the Secretary of State to the Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation of the Kingdom of Morocco, Mrs. Mounia Boucetta and the Secretary General of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of New Zealand, Mr. Brook Barrington, in presence of the Ambassador of HM the King to New Zealand, Mr. Karim Medrek.

These agreements reflect the importance of strengthening the cooperation ties between Morocco and New Zealand, two countries committed to work together in order to develop and strengthen their relations at all levels.

These political consultations, conducted within the framework of the Royal Vision which encourages the diversification of partners, will give a new impetus for bilateral ties between Rabat and Wellington.

It is worth mentioning that the two parties discussed during this session a number of issues of common interest, including priority areas for cooperation, regional and global issues, trade and multilateral cooperation.

The talks between the two sides illustrated a convergence of views, particularly with regard to the fight against terrorism, security and the fight against the impacts of climate change.

On the regional level, it is worth recalling that that Morocco and New Zealand, two key actors in their respective regions, attach a great importance to the development of triangular cooperation for the benefit of African and Pacific Island countries.
