Moroccan King visits Syria
Moroccan King Mohammed VI and Syrian President Bashar al-Assad appealed for Arab unity Saturday night, hours after the Moroccan leader arrived in Syria.
"The two parties called for a bolstering of coordination and consultations among Arab countries and the reestablishing of solidarity to face current challenges," SANA reported.
The two leaders especially discussed, "latest developments on the Palestinian stage," SANA said.
The Moroccan monarch arrived in Damascus for a three-day visit during which he is expected to hold talks with Syrian officials, an official source said earlier.
"This visit is very important for coordination among the Arabs in light of developments in the region and because of the responsibilities the two countries hold," Syrian Information Minister Adnan Omran said Friday.
King Mohammed VI visited Jordan on Monday and Tuesday and held talks with Jordan’s King Abdullah II on the situation in the Palestinian occupied territories as well as Arab and international efforts to contain the regional crisis.
Following Syria, he is scheduled to visit Saudi Arabia and Qatar. (Albawaba.com)
