Syria crisis dominates Morocco, Saudi Foreign Ministers talks

Morocco

The fight against terrorism and the conflicts in Syria and Yemen dominated discussions in bilateral talks held by Saudi’s Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir and his Moroccan counterpart, Salahdine Mezouar in Rabat on Wednesday.

“The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is committed to help our brothers in Syria to face the tyrant in Damascus and to bring the country out of its current crisis, to create a new future for Syria without Bashar al-Assad, “ said Al-Jubeir.

Recent reports said Saudi Arabia had announced its commitment to send forces to participate in a ground military intervention in Syria.

The move had been welcomed by U.S. President Barack Obama during a press conference in Washington on Friday.

However, Morocco’s Foreign Minister said his country’s participation in a possible military intervention in Syria was not on the agenda.

The North African minister used the occasion to announced that the 13th session of the high Moroccan-Saudi joint commission for economic cooperation will be held next May in Rabat.
