US Secretary of State Hilary Rodham Clinton and Moroccan Minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation Saad-Eddine Al Otmani will launch the US-Morocco Strategic Dialogue, starting here with an opening session Thursday.
After this opening session, Senior U.S. and Moroccan officials will continue discussions in four working groups focused on political, economic, security, and educational and cultural affairs, US State Department said.
The day's events will conclude with a closing session led by Under Secretary for Political Affairs Wendy Sherman and Minister Delegate Youssef Amrani.
Moroccan American Center for Policy adds, The Strategic Dialogue is a formal institutionalized framework that establishes an ongoing collaboration on issues of importance between both countries concerning global and regional issues as well as bilateral interests.
It will not be affected by changes in administration, leadership or personnel.
It will allow the US to coordinate its foreign policy interests and values more closely with Morocco.
