Moscow, Rabat Sign 11 New Bilateral Agreements in Morocco

RABAT Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev signed on Wednesday a series of bilateral trade agreements with his Moroccan counterpart, Saadeddine Othmani, during an official visit to the North African country.

The 11 agreements signed cover various areas of cooperation, including defense and security, energy, agriculture, industry, trade, culture and education, Medvedev and Othmani stated during a joint press conference.

Medvedev explained the defense agreement included the delivery of Russian military products to Morocco, but did not specify whether they were weapons, vehicles or other equipment.

In agriculture, the Russian PM said that the agreement would facilitate the entry of Moroccan food products to Russian markets, as the North African country has a wider range of crops.

Morocco agricultural exports to Russia increased in 2014, after Moscow imposed a ban on European agricultural products.

On his first visit to Morocco, Medvedev laid a wreath at the mausoleum of King Mohammed V and was later awarded a honorary doctorate from the Mohammed V University in Rabat.

King Mohammed VI is expected to receive the Russian prime minister on Wednesday night at his palace in Rabat.
