Jordan-Morocco, Politics, 10/25/2001
Morocco and Jordan signed here on Thursday a package of agreements at the end of their high joint commission held this Oct.24-25.
The commission, co-chaired by Moroccan and Jordanian prime ministers, respectively Abderrahmane Youssoufi and Ali Abu Ragheb, reached agreements meant to foster cooperation in investments, exports promotion, protection of plant health, tourism, merchant navy, social development, information, culture and youth and sports.
Other agreements were signed between private operators of the two countries, dealing with fish processing and transportation and textile production. The two Arab countries also set up a joint business council.
A document published at the end of the session says Morocco and Jordan welcomed the US and British support to the creation of a Palestinian state and condemned Israeli repressive practices in the occupied Palestinian territories and renewed attachment to the Middle east peace process. The two countries insisted a fair, comprehensive and lasting peace in the Middle east is only possible with respect of international legality and resolutions stipulating Israel's total withdrawal from all the Arab territories it is occupying, including Al Quds, the Golan heights and all southern Lebanon.
The two sides renewed refusal and condemnation of terrorism in all its forms and stressed the need to intensify international efforts to combat its origins and ramification, underscoring that all pending problems should be settled. In this regard, they condemned the attacks against the USA, which made innocent victims and denounced all attempts to associate terrorism to Islam.
The meeting further called for lifting the embargo enforced against Iraq and welcomed ongoing efforts to mend fences between Iraq and Kuwait.
