During this meeting, King Mohammed VI and Kushner held talks on «strengthening the long-standing, solid and multidimensional strategic partnership between Morocco and the United States, as well as on developments in the North Africa and Middle East region», MAP news agency reported.

Tuesday’s Iftar was also attended by the King’s advisor Fouad Ali El Himma and Foreign Affairs Minister Nasser Bourita.
