Aiming for Greater Coop. With N. Africa

Aiming for Greater Coop. With N. Africa

The Foreign Ministry spokeswoman announced Iran's firm resolve to cooperate with North African countries, including Morocco, based on the principles of mutual respect and non-interference in one another's internal affairs.  
Marzieh Afkham made the remarks in reference to the reopening of Iran's Embassy in Morocco and appointment of a new ambassador to the North African country, Fars news agency reported on Sunday.
She said the two countries aim to boost political and economic cooperation and increase exchange of commercial delegations. On the reestablishment of relations with Rabat, the spokesperson said, "Iran follows the policy of enhancing bilateral cooperation in all areas," saying the policy is in line with the Islamic Republic's approach to maintain brotherly relations with all Muslim countries, including Morocco.
Relations between Iran and Morocco soured in 2009 following a series of disputes on regional issues. Iran officially appointed Mohammad Taqi Moayyed, a career diplomat who had previously served in Tunisia, the Netherlands and Greece, as new ambassador to Morocco. He submitted his credentials to Morocco's King Mohammed VI last week.
Morocco, however, has not yet named any ambassador to Tehran. Moroccan officials have announced that a new ambassador is to be appointed soon.
