Germany welcomed “the reforms carried out by Morocco, under the leadership of His Majesty King Mohammed VI, for a more open and dynamic Moroccan society and economy,” according to a joint statement made in Berlin by the ministers of foreign affairs of the Federal Republic of Germany, Annalena Baerbock, and the Kingdom of Morocco, Nasser Bourita.

Germany also commended Morocco for its proactive and positive role and contribution, under the Sovereign’s leadership, to peace and stability in the region in the Declaration released after the first session of the bilateral Strategic Dialogue.

In order to accomplish this, Berlin restated Germany’s belief that Morocco is a vital partner in Africa for the European Union, NATO, and Germany as well as a vital conduit between the North and South.

Germany further stated that it was “closely following the initiatives launched by His Majesty King Mohammed VI for the African continent, including that of November 6, 2023, for the Sahel region.”

According to the joint statement that was approved on the occasion of Baerbock’s visit to Morocco on August 25th 2022, Bourita and Baerbock had the first meeting of their bilateral strategic conversation on Friday.
