According to MAP news agency, the Moroccan-US talks also covered latest developments in North Africa and the Middle-East region.
On this occasion, the Moroccan Sovereign hosted an Iftar dinner (fast-breaking meal) at the royal residence in Salé, near Rabat’s capital city, in honor of Mr. Jared Kushner, President Donald Trump’s son-in-law.
The Iftar was attended by Crown Prince Moulay El Hassan, US Presidential Assistant & Special Representative for International Negotiations Jason Greenblatt, Royal Advisor Fouad Ali El Himma and Foreign affairs minister Nasser Bourita.
