Cuba’s non-resident ambassador to Morocco, Elio Rodriguez Perdomo, has praised the evolution of bilateral cooperation ties since the restoration of diplomatic relations between the two countries.
“All conditions are in place to move forward in bilateral relations with the opening of a Cuban embassy in Rabat which will represent an important step,” said the diplomat in an interview with the President of the House representatives, Habib El Malki.
Quoted in a statement of the House, Mr. Rodriguez Perdomo emphasized the Kingdom’s place of choice at the regional and international levels, calling for common initiatives, particularly towards the African continent.
While underlining the ambition of the Cuban legislative institution to cooperate more closely with the House of Representatives, the Ambassador invited Mr. El Malki to make a working visit to Cuba to discuss ways of bilateral cooperation.
The Speaker of the House of Representatives, for his part recalled the determination of King Mohammed VI to further strengthen South-South cooperation as evidenced by the development projects which the Sovereign kicked off in several African countries.
Noting the importance in this sense of increased triangular cooperation between Cuba, Morocco and Africa, El Malki affirmed the Kingdom’s commitment to give a new impetus to cooperation between the two legislative institutions.
In this regard, he called for the institutionalization of relations between the parliaments of the two countries through the signing of a cooperation agreement relating to them, while working for intensive consultations and the exchange of visits between members of the legislative institutions.
