Morocco, Senegal seek to strengthen military cooperation

RABAT, MOROCCO —-Authorities in Rabat have confirmed that Morocco and Senegal have agreed on  Tuesday to cement bilateral military cooperation, according to military chiefs from the two countries met.

The Inspector General of Morocco’s army, Fathallah El Ouarrak, and the Senegalese Chief of Defense Staff, Lieutenant-General Sheikh Gueye, examined various aspects of bilateral military cooperation, especially in the area of training and the exchange of visits and experiences, according to the Moroccan Royal Armed Forces in a statement.

A communique released said the cooperation is part of the exceptional relations between the two brotherly countries, which are based on historical ties between Morocco and Senegal.

The two military chiefs praised the positive military cooperation between their two countries’ armed forces, the statement noted.

Officials say the training of Senegalese military personnel at FAR’s schools and training centers which stated in 1969, has always been the main alliance of the Moroccan-Senegalese military cooperation.

Sources say more than 2,500 Senegalese military officers have received training at the kingdom’s military schools.

The talks take place as the Senegalese Chief of Defense Staff leads a large military delegation on a working visit to Morocco on Nov. 20-25.
