El Aaraj told MAP that this visit is part of the strengthening of the relations of cooperation between Morocco and China which are "distinguished and strategic", underlining the importance of exchanging views in the field of media.

Following these talks, El Aaraj said that his ministry intends to organize exchanges of visits for Moroccan and Chinese journalists.

In this context, the ministry is working along with professional bodies of the sector to send several Moroccan journalists to China in the coming months, he added.

This visit was also an opportunity to inform the Chinese delegation on several constitutional and legal achievements in the fields of publishing and media, he said.

The ministry also intends to set up a Moroccan-Chinese joint committee to deepen bilateral ties in the fields of media and journalism, he said, stressing the importance of strengthening cooperation in the media and cultural sectors, given their influence on public opinion.

The ministry plans to organize an international forum between China and the Arab countries in the media sector, the minister said.

For his part, Hu Xiaohan, who is leading a Chinese media delegation to Morocco, said the visit aims to strengthen relations between the two countries in the field of journalism, noting that Chinese officials and media professionals are interested in strengthening relations between the two countries.

The Association of Chinese Journalists has made two visits to Morocco since last year, which reflects "the interest in strengthening relations with our Moroccan counterparts," he said.

The Association is organizing next year a forum on "the Belt and Road Initiative" and invited Morocco to participate in this event, he said, adding that he was confident in the future of cooperation between the two countries in the media field.

The talks were attended by a delegation of Chinese media professionals, in the presence of Chinese Ambassador to Morocco Li Li.
