Jakarta   -  
The historical links between Morocco and Indonesia should result in concrete and mutually beneficial cooperation projects, said, Tuesday in Jakarta, Indonesian vice minister of Foreign Affairs, Abdurrahman Fachir.

"Morocco and Indonesia need to turn the bonds and values they share into mutually beneficial concrete cooperation," Fachir told MAP after his meeting with Moroccan secretary of State to the minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Mounia Boucetta, who is on a working visit to Jakarta to submit the plan of action on Morocco's candidacy to become a Sectoral Dialogue Partner (SDP) within ASEAN.

The Indonesian official also stressed the need to strengthen economic and investment opportunities for the operators of both countries, referring in this regard to the draft Preferential Trade Agreement (PTA), currently under discussion between the two parties.

He added that the next joint commission will be an opportunity to revitalize and stimulate bilateral relations.

For her part, Boucetta said that Morocco considers ASEAN as a successful model of economic integration that has capitalized on socio-cultural and security gains while preserving the principle of non-interference.

"Morocco strongly supports this strategic vision that draws its strength from a real and solid integration," she said.
