Tripoli October 5 2013:
The prime minister flies to the Moroccan capital Rabat tomorrow for a working visit lasting until . . .[restrict]8 October. Accompanying him will be the Foreign Minister, Mohamed Abdulziz, Deputy Prime Minister Sadiq Abdulkarim who is acting Interior Minister, Economy Minister Mustafa Abofanas and a number of other Libyan officials.
A statement from the Moroccan government yesterday said that social cooperation would be one of the issues on the agenda in talks with Morocco’s Prime Minister, Abdelilah Benkirane. There will be separate meetings between the Libyan ministers and their Moroccan counterparts.
Zeidan will also meet with the President of the House of Representatives (the lower chamber of Morocco’s parliament), Karim Ghallab, before heading to Casablanca to meet with representatives of the General Confederation of Moroccan Enterprises.
A number of draft agreements between the two governments will be signed according to the Moroccan government statement, without giving further details.
The former Prime Minister Abdurrahim Al-Kib visited Morocco in August last year. This will be Zeidan’s first official visit since becoming Prime Minister, although he has been to Tunisia and Algeria and is known to be keen on closer Maghreb ties.
