Czech Republic Backs Morocco’s Autonomy Plan, Signs Joint Declaration and MoU
On Thursday, the Czech Republic expressed its support for the Autonomy Plan, presented by the Kingdom of Morocco in 2007, as a credible and serious effort, offering a constructive basis for a mutually agreed-upon solution for all concerned parties.
This statement was made during an official visit to Prague by Nasser Bourita, Minister of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation, and Moroccans Residing Abroad, along with Jan Lipavský, Czech Minister of Foreign Affairs.
The ministers backed the UN Secretary-General’s Personal Envoy, Staffan de Mistura, in advancing the political process in line with UN Security Council resolutions.
They also emphasized the importance of enhancing historical relations between Morocco and the Czech Republic, expressing a shared commitment to further strengthening their partnership.
Bourita and Lipavský expressed their intent to deepen cooperation across various domains and praised the increase in bilateral trade and Czech investments in Morocco over recent years.
Furthermore, the two officials discussed the situation in the Middle East and the global impacts of the Ukraine-Russia war, as well as European Union-Morocco cooperation.
Through the joint declaration, both ministers agreed to promote more reciprocal visits–including economic missions–and to address common financial interests.
This visit and joint declaration underscore the commitment to building robust ties between the two nations.
During the same visit, Bourita also held talks in Prague with Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade of the Czech Republic Edvard Kožušnik, and signed a MoU in the fields of Mining and Geology.
