Iran seeks enhanced ties with Morocco: Afkham

Iran says it is determined to strengthen cordial relations with North African countries, particularly Morocco, based on mutual respect and non-interference in internal affairs of each country.

Iranian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman, Marzieh Afkham, said on Sunday that the reopening of Iran’s embassy in Morocco and the appointment of a new ambassador to the North African country show Tehran’s determination to improve ties with Rabat in all fields.

She added that Iran and Morocco also plan to boost political and economic cooperation, and exchange commercial delegations.

Relations between Iran and Morocco were severed 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 its 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 named soon.
