Morocco attaches great importance to the China proposed Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), said Moroccan Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Nasser Bourita.

“The initiative is of particular interest to Morocco as it aims to promote regional integration, interconnection and the construction of major infrastructure,” Bourita said in an interview with the Moroccan official MAP News Agency on the sidelines of the second Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation in Beijing.

The Initiative will create important economic bridges between continents, he noted.

The Moroccan minister also expressed his country’s support for the BRI within the framework of the strategic partnership between China and Morocco.
