RIYADH: Speaker of the Saudi Shoura Council Sheikh Abdullah Al-Sheikh will begin an official visit to Morocco on Sunday, the Saudi Press Agency reported on Saturday.
Al-Sheikh will head a parliamentary delegation in response to an invitation from the Speaker of the Moroccan House of Representatives, Rachid Talbi Alami, and the Speaker of the Moroccan House of Councillors, Al-Naam Mayara.
During the visit, Al-Sheikh will hold two sessions of talks with both officials, focusing on strengthening bilateral relations between the two countries, in particular parliamentary relations between the Shoura Council and the Moroccan Parliament, as well as activating the role of parliamentary friendship committees in promoting cooperation.
The visit will also include the signing of two agreements for parliamentary cooperation between the Shoura Council, the House of Representatives and Moroccan advisers to provide a framework for enhancing joint efforts and interaction between the two chambers.
Al-Sheikh said that the visit comes in the context of Saudi Arabia’s King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and Morocco’s King Mohammed VI’s keenness to strengthen and consolidate well-established brotherly relations, and coordinate their mutual positions on various issues in different political and parliamentary forums.
