The Saudi FM said that the Ministerial Meeting of the Global Coalition to Defeat ISIS was an opportunity to address various issues of common interest.

He then highlighted the success of the first session of Moroccan-Saudi political consultations, held recently in Riyadh, and which will continue next June in Rabat.

Regarding the fight against terrorism, Prince Faisal bin Farhan stressed the central role played by the Global Coalition to Defeat ISIS in the field of counter-terrorism, as well as the importance of cooperation and coordination between different countries to end this threat.

For his part, Bourita said that Rabat and Riyadh maintain permanent coordination relations, noting that “the supreme interests of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia are strategic interests for Morocco.”

He added that the talks were an opportunity to further strengthen bilateral relations, noting that the two kingdoms share the same views on several regional and international issues.
