NEWSROOM (ADV) – Essebsi met with Latifa Akharbach at the end of her mission as Morocco’s ambassador to Tunisia on Tuesday.

During the meeting, the Tunisian president commended King Mohammed VI’s efforts, saying that the monarch’s leadership and foresight “makes it possible to consolidate Morocco’s achievement in terms of economic development and political stability.”

During the meeting, Essebsi also recalled the “great convergence between his country and Morocco, each with its own specific institutions and history, particularly in terms of adherence to democratic values and the choice of a model of an open and modern society.”

He also conveyed his best wishes and regards to the King.

Essebsi received Akharbach because she will leave the Moroccan mission in Tunisia after King Mohammed VI appointed her as the new president of the High Authority of Audiovisual Communication (HACA) earlier this month.

Morocco and Tunisia maintain good diplomatic ties. In November, Tunisian Minister of Foreign Affairs Khemaies Jhinaoui welcomed Morocco’s dialogue offer proposed by King Mohammed VI to Algeria.

He said that Morocco’s initiative is one of the proposals which may “contribute to the operationalization” of Maghreb relations at the bilateral and regional levels, “in order to turn the old page” of regional conflicts between Morocco and Algeria.

On November 6, King Mohammed VI offered Algeria a dialogue initiative, condemning the “division” and lack of cooperation between the countries of the Maghreb.
