 In the framework of the excellent relations between the Kingdom of Morocco and the People’s Republic of China, His Majesty Mohammed VI, King of Morocco held, on Monday, August 31, 2020, a telephone conversation with His Excellency Xi JINPING, President of the People's Republic of China. This Phone conversation between the two Heads of State was focused on the development of bilateral relations in all fields, notably the political dialogue, the Economic Cooperation as well as the cultural and human exchanges. As the world, including the two countries, is undergoing a difficult moment due to the Coronavirus, the two Heads of State discussed the partnership between Rabat and Beijing with regard to the fight against Coronavirus as well as the future stages of cooperation between the two countries in managing this sanitary crisis. Besides, His Majesty the King tackled with the Chinese President the future stages of operational cooperation between the Kingdom of Morocco and the People's Republic of China, as part of the fight against this pandemic. This meeting constituted an occasion for His Majesty the King to thank the People's Republic of China for the support that it provided to the robust preventive measures taken by the Kingdom of Morocco in order to stem the spread of the COVID-19, in terms of medical equipment, screening tests, and sharing information and expertise. It is worth recalling that Morocco and China enjoy excellent relations, reinforced by the Joint Declaration on Strategic Partnership, signed by His Majesty the King and the Chinese President Xi JINPING during the Royal Visit to Beijing, in May 2016. The visit has been marked by the conclusion of a strategic partnership between the two countries, reflecting the positive development of bilateral relations. Moreover, Morocco is one of the first signatories of the MoU of the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) which contributes in the realization of the objectives of cooperation between Morocco, China and Africa within the framework of South-South Cooperation.
