Marrakech, 16/11/2016 (MAP) – U.S. Secretary of State, John Kerry, described as “very comprehensive” and “very positive” his tête-à-tête talks with HM King Mohammed VI, on Wednesday at the Royal reception room of the Palais des Congrès in Marrakech.

“With HM the King we had a very comprehensive and very positive discussion,” the U.S. official told the press, stressing that “President Barack Obama and I are grateful for the quality of relations we have with HM the King, Morocco and the government.”
