“We reveal the commonness of stances on global issues,” Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has said.

“We discussed the situation in the region, including the events in Syria, Iraq, Libya, Maghreb (Northwest Africa) and the Sahara-Sahel area,” Lavrov said.

“One cannot use these conflicts as a pretext for postponing the Palestine-Israeli talks,” he said.

In addition, Lavrov said trade turnover between Russia and Morocco had increased by 65% as compared with the same period of 2013.

“The intergovernmental commission for economic, trade, scientific and technical cooperation should play an important role in further strengthening of relations. The commission is planning to meet in September 2014,” Lavrov said.

“We agreed to continue cooperation between economic agencies and businessmen for diversifying trade contacts and expanding the legal base of our relationship,” he said.
