During talks with Bahraini Foreign minister, Khalid bin Ahmed bin Mohammed AlKhalifa, who is visiting the Kingdom on the occasion of the 4th session of the Moroccan-Bahraini High Joint Committee, El Malki said that both countries have an important geostrategic position, since they are gateways, respectively, to the African and Asian markets, said a statement by the lower house.

He also highlighted the solid links between the two countries and peoples, and the convergence of visions between Morocco and Bahrain on regional and international issues as well as the principles and values they share.

At the parliamentary level, El Malki invited his Bahraini peer to pay a working visit to the Kingdom to discuss ways to strengthen bilateral relations between the two legislative institutions, highlighting the importance of parliamentary diplomacy in strengthening relations between the two Kingdoms.

This visit will be an opportunity to sign a cooperation agreement between the two institutions, as a framework for consultation and exchange of experiences in matters of common interest, he said.

For his part, the Bahraini minister praised bilateral relations between the two countries, under the leadership of the two Heads of State, reviewing all the cooperation agreements signed during his visit, notably the one on air transport to open a direct airline between Rabat and Manama.

After stressing that the two countries share the same political positions, he noted that Bahrain considers the conflict around the Sahara as an artificial one dating back to the Cold War era, lauding Morocco's stance on the threats facing Bahrain.
