“In the relations between Serbia and Morocco, there is an exceptional dynamic based on friendship, mutual respect and approximation of positions on issues of common interest,” said Moroccan Ambassador H.E. Mohammed Amine Belhaj who organized a reception on the occasion of the 24th anniversary of the coronation of King Muhammad VI.
Ambassador Belhaj assessed that since the establishment of diplomatic relations, 66 years ago, Morocco and Serbia have had friendly and constructive relations, that the cooperation between the two countries is also strengthening on the political level, and that strengthening, as he noted, can be observed through regular political dialogue, the strengthening of legal framework, then through numerous high-level visits, as well as through coordination within various international organizations that can serve as an example.
“I am happy about the upcoming organization of the third session of the Joint Commission for Economic Cooperation and the first Business Forum in Belgrade, with the aim of turning excellent political relations into realistic economic opportunities, which will bring prosperity and well-being to our peoples,” the ambassador said, and added:
“When I arrived in Belgrade, my main priorities were to strengthen all domains of cooperation. I am pleased to announce that the Minister of Science, Technological Development and Innovation, Jelena Begović, will soon lead a delegation that will discuss cooperation in the field in Rabat science and technology”.
Morocco, he said, has made significant progress in renewable energy sources, especially in solar energy, wind energy and green hydrogen, so the two countries should also focus on cooperation in that area:
“We have valuable experience and expertise that we can share with Serbia. Using their strengths and knowledge, Serbia and Morocco can cooperate more closely in the field of green energy transformation to ensure energy sovereignty.”
The ambassador emphasized that his goal is to strengthen ties in the field of tourism:
“We are working on introducing direct flights between Morocco and Belgrade. We are in contact with Air Serbia, I hope that next year we will have a direct flight that will help Moroccans come to visit Belgrade and the Balkans, and our friends from Serbia to see Morocco”.
The ceremony, which began with the singing of the national anthems of the two countries, was attended by representatives of the Government of Serbia, public life and ambassadors of numerous countries.
