Belgium-Morocco meeting seeks to boost bilateral ties and cooperation

Belgian Prime Minister Alexander De Croo met with Moroccan Head of Government Aziz Akhannouch in Rabat Monday, as they co-chaired a Moroccan-Belgium meeting of the High Commission of Partnership. De Croo reaffirmed Belgium’s support for the UN-led political process to find a just, lasting and mutually acceptable solution to the Western Sahara dispute, according to a joint statement released after the meeting.

“In this context, Belgium considers the Moroccan autonomy initiative, presented in 2007, as a serious and credible effort by Morocco and as a good basis for a solution accepted by the parties[to the dispute],” the joint statement said.

Both nations emphasized the need to strengthen cooperation across various sectors, including trade, investment, climate action, and infrastructure. Additionally, they highlighted collaboration in sports, particularly in women's sports, with Morocco commending Belgium's joint bid to host the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2027.

The two countries agreed to maintain the strategic partnership between Morocco and the EU and deepen cooperation at all levels, the official statement added.
