The Minister of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation and Moroccan Expatriates, Mr. Nasser Bourita, received, on 18, April, 2024 in Rabat, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Liberia, Ms. Sara Beysolow Nyanti.

Mr. Nasser Bourita pointed out that Liberia's constant and positive positions on the issue of the Moroccan Sahara have consolidated bilateral relations.

These positions have been expressed on several occasions, notably through the opening of a Liberian consulate general in Dakhla in March 2020, Bourita underlined during a joint press briefing with his Liberian peer, Sara Beysolow Nyanti, adding that Liberia was among the first countries to open a consulate in the southern provinces of the Kingdom.

In this regard, he pointed out that Moroccan-Liberian relations have experienced significant development in recent years, thanks to the enlightened vision and High Instructions of His Majesty King Mohammed VI, to instill new momentum, give a strong boost to these bilateral relations and raise them to a higher level, based on the strong ties of friendship and brotherhood and fruitful cooperation reflecting the excellence of the historical relations between the two countries.

The meeting between the two parties focused on several issues, including the joint commission, scheduled for next July in Monrovia, he said, noting that preparations for the next meetings which will be held in Morocco are in progress.

Both parties also agreed, according to Mr. Nasser Bourita, to renew the cooperation roadmap by identifying the sectoral areas on which cooperation between the two countries will be based in the years to come, adding that Morocco will open a diplomatic center in Monrovia, before the end of the year.

The two sides also discussed the role played by both countries regionally, notably the important initiatives for the African continent and the West African region, in which Liberia plays an important role.

In this regard, the minister stressed that Liberia enjoys an important place in the initiatives launched by His Majesty King Mohammed VI, in particular those relating to Atlantic African countries, the Nigeria-Morocco-Europe gas pipeline and the international initiative of His Majesty the King to promote access of Sahel countries to the Atlantic Ocean.

Mr. Nasser Bourita also said that it was agreed to coordinate and consult on African issues, whether within the framework of the Mano River Union, the African Union or within the framework of the UN, adding that Morocco supports the candidacies presented by Liberia for important positions within the framework of the United Nations bodies.

Morocco is committed to working with Liberia as a partner and friend in accordance with the principles of respect, solidarity and the win-win approach, advocated by His Majesty King Mohammed VI, and the principle of South-South and inter-African cooperation, considered by the Sovereign as the foundation of the development of the African continent, Bourita concluded.

Liberian Foreign Minister is visiting the Kingdom on her first official visit to a foreign country since her appointment as head of Liberian diplomacy, following the presidential elections of November 2023, won by Joseph Boakai.

on the other side, the Liberian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Ms. Sara Beysolow Nyanti, expressed  in Tamesna her country's wish to benefit from the Moroccan experience in vocational training, commending the kingdom’s progress in this area.

During a meeting with Director-General of the Office of Vocational Training and Employment Promotion (OFPPT), Ms. Loubna Tricha on the occasion of the visit made by a Liberian delegation to the City of Trades and Skills (CMC) of Rabat-Salé-Kénitra, the minister said that her country is interested in the expertise of the Office in priority sectors, notably agriculture and agribusiness, tourism, blue economy, as well as construction.

In a statement to the press, Ms. Beysolow Nyanti underlined that Africa cannot achieve its sustainable development goals and prosper without training the necessary skills.

For her part, Ms. Tricha stressed that her talks with the Liberian official were an opportunity to examine the ways to broaden the prospects of cooperation between Morocco and Liberia to other more strategic actions, in particular training engineering and skills transfer, in addition to welcoming Liberian trainees in OFPPT institutions.

OFPPT will also support Liberia through diagnostic missions to identify professional training needs specific to the country and areas requiring support from the Office, she added.

Since 2005, OFPPT has welcomed nearly 190 Liberian trainees who have benefited from training in transport and logistics, digital, tourism and industry professions.
