MFA Nasser Bourita holds talks with his Brazilian counterpart
The two officials expressed their willingness to pursue the dynamics of bilateral cooperation, in order to set up a multidimensional Strategic Partnership based on political dialogue and economic cooperation, in accordance with the High Guidance of His Majesty King Mohammed VI.
Mr. Bourita congratulated Mr. França on Brazil's election as a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council for the period 2022-2023, which attests to the trust, credibility and reputation that Brazil has always enjoyed in the international community.
Regarding the Moroccan Sahara, Mr. França expressed Brazil's congratulations to the Kingdom of Morocco for its serious and credible efforts and reiterated his country's support for the UN process to reach a just, realistic and pragmatic solution to this regional dispute.
The two ministers also exchanged views on a number of regional and international issues of common interest and agreed to continue to work together on a number of issues, in particular the South Atlantic, which has proven strategic potential for both countries, as well as the prospects for expanding trade cooperation between Morocco and the Southern Common Market (MERCOSUR).
The Brazilian ministry expressed its commitment to deepen the dialogue and strengthen the strategic partnership with Morocco, a country that has established itself, at the international level, as a relevant actor for the promotion of peace, security and religious tolerance.
The Brazilian minister also praised the balanced positions of the Kingdom which have contributed to consensus building and the peaceful resolution of conflicts and crises.
In 2020, bilateral trade amounted to 1.78 billion dollars, the Brazilian ministry noted, recalling the signing in 2019 of the Agreement on Cooperation and Facilitation of Investments (ACFI) between the two countries.
Morocco is the third most important market for Brazilian agricultural products in Africa and North Africa and is an important destination for Brazilian industrial exports.
