The Minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation Makes an Official Visit to Peru
Rabat 06.23.2014

The Minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation, Mr. Salaheddine Mezouar makes, from the 22nd to the 25th of June 2014, an official visit to the Republic of Peru, heading an important delegation.


This visit falls within the framework of the celebration of the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relationships between Morocco and Peru, placed under the High Patronage of His Majesty the King Mohammed VI, May God Assist Him.

During this visit, Mr. Mezouar will hold talks with the Prime Minister, Rene Cornejo, the Minister of Foreign Relations, Eda Rivas and the Speaker of the Congress, Fredy Otarola.

Mr. Mezouar will also give a conference at the “Javier Perez de Cuellar” Diplomatic Academy under the theme of “Morocco’s foreign policy and its relations with Latin America”.

This visit will also be marked by the conclusion of a series of agreements of cooperation between the two countries in various fields.

Since the establishment of diplomatic relations between Morocco and Peru in 1964, the promotion of the bilateral cooperation and collaboration has always been at the core of the concerns of both countries’ officials at the highest level, notably after the state visit made by His Majesty the King Mohammed VI, May God Assist Him, in 2004, to Peru, which marked a decisive turning point in the history of relations between both countries and which enabled to give a real impetus to the partnership, namely the political one, with Peru.

Since then, the agreements signed between Morocco and Peru, of which the Agreement on Economic, Scientific and Technical Cooperation, ratified by both countries in 2013, which enables the holding, from now on, of the first session of the Joint Commission, have set the bases of an all-out solid partnership, enhancing the bilateral cooperation, in a way, as to better serve the common interests of the two friendly peoples.

Regarding trade exchanges between the two countries, although they have witnessed a positive evolution these last years (exchanges estimated at 70 million dollars in 2012), they remain far below the real potentials. Several growth sectors could be targeted such as agriculture, tourism, fisheries and renewable energies.
