Morocco’s Lower House, Saudi Shura Council Agree to Institutionalize Bilateral Relations

Rabat – The House of Representatives (lower house) and the Saudi Shura Council agreed on Monday in Rabat to institutionalize their bilateral relations.

At a press briefing following his talks with Chairman of the Saudi Shura Council, Abdullah Ibn Muhammad Al Ash-Sheikh, speaker of the House of Representatives, Habib El Malki said that the two sides agreed to institutionalize their bilateral relations at a forthcoming meeting in Riyadh, highlighting the “excellent” level of relations between the two institutions.

El Malki stressed that this meeting was an opportunity to reaffirm the quality of relations between the two countries under the leadership of HM King Mohammed VI and the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, indicating that these privileged ties are illustrated, in particular, by Saudi Arabia’s support for the territorial integrity of the Kingdom of Morocco.

Moroccan-Saudi relations are constructive and forward-looking, through the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s contribution to the financing of several development projects in different sectors, he added.

El Malki also noted that the two parties considered that the situation in the Arab world requires a new vision and a new impetus, with a view to facing the challenges of the 21st century, noting that parliamentary diplomacy would be qualified to undertake this role.

For his part, Al Ash-Sheikh, who is on a working visit to the Kingdom leading a large delegation, expressed the hope that Moroccan-Saudi relations would achieve greater prosperity, development and modernity.

The Saudi official also expressed the wishes of the Saudi leadership and people for success, continuity and prosperity to HM King Mohammed VI, calling for raising the level of bilateral ties further.
