Moroccan Prime Minister Abdul Ilah Bin Kiran met in Rabat yesterday with Qatar’s Minister of Finance HE Ali Sherif al-Emadi who is currently on a visit to Morocco in the framework of strengthening and deepening the fraternal relations between the two countries.

Discussions during the meeting focused on ways to strengthen bilateral ties.

Within the framework of the visit, Qatar and Morocco have signed a grant agreement for the financing of two development projects.

The agreement was signed by Qatari Minister of Finance, Moroccan Minister of Economy and Finance Mohamed Bou Said and Morocco’s Minister of Agriculture and Fisheries Aziz Akhannouch.
