Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Serbia Nikola Selakovic met today in Morocco with the Mayor of the capital, Mohamed Sadiki.

The Serbian Foreign Minister pointed out that the strengthening of partnership between the capitals, Belgrade and Rabat, could particularly contribute to the promotion and development of relations between Serbia and Morocco.

The Minister also said that he was truly impressed by the development projects of Rabat, a city in which, as he pointed out, the quality of life was improving from year to year and which was on the steady path of becoming the first green capital.

The exchange of experiences between Rabat and Belgrade, the Minister emphasized, was helping the development of friendly relations between the two capitals and the two countries.

"I am truly amazed by what the leadership of the city of Rabat, in accordance with the wish of His Majesty King Mohammed VI, has been doing to enhance living conditions and to further develop the city. I am convinced that the moment we are all eagerly awaiting - the end of the Covid-19 pandemic - will come in the nearest future so that we celebrate next year in the spirit of the 65th anniversary of our diplomatic relations, given that our two capitals will play an important role in that celebration. I extend my heartfelt congratulations once again to the leadership of the city of Rabat, led by Mr. Mayor, wishing that they only have more success in their future work", Selakovic said.

The Minister added that he was impressed by the visit to the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Rabat and that the project of that city as a cultural capital was a captivating success story, realized in an exceptional way.

Minister Selakovic, Mayor Sadiki, Chief Engineer and Chief Architect also took a tour of L'Orangerie and La Marina projects, i.e. the Rabat Waterfront, which is being built by the Eagle Hills company, known for the Belgrade Waterfront.
