Morocco, Tunisia sign 20 bilateral pacts
TUNIS – Moroccan King Mohamed VI arrived in Tunis on Friday for his first official visit to the country since the January 2011 popular uprising.
The king, whose three-day visit comes at the invitation of Moncef Marzouki, was met by the Tunisian president at the airport in Aouina near the capital mid-afternoon.
Eleven ministers and some 90 businessmen are accompanying the king on the visit.
Around 20 bilateral agreements, in both the private and public sectors, are due to be signed during the visit, according to the president’s office.
Mohamed VI also meet Prime Minister Mehdi Jomaa on Saturday and give a speech to the National Constituent Assembly at 1530 GMT. Shortly after his election to the presidency in 2012, Marzouki visited Morocco, a country he is familiar with having lived there.
