Volume 455: debated on Monday 15 January 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if she will make a statement on relations between Morocco and the United Kingdom. (115805)

The UK’s relations with Morocco continue to grow stronger.

The Government are committed to further broaden and deepen UK/Morocco co-operation. This includes supporting the Moroccan Government’s plans for economic and social development, and developing co-operation in areas of shared interest and concern, e.g. tackling the threat from international terrorism and the challenges presented by regional migration.

In order to take forward these objectives the UK and Morocco have set up an annual Ministerial Dialogue Forum between the two countries. I co-chaired the inaugural session in Rabat in June 2006 and look forward to a second round of the Forum in London later this year.
