Serbia reiterated, on Tuesday, its support for the territorial integrity of Morocco, stressing the importance of a political solution to regional conflicts in accordance with the relevant UNSC resolutions.

 ''Relations with Morocco are witnessing a positive momentum,'' Serbian Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Ivica Dacic said at a press conference in Belgrade with Foreign minister Nasser Bourita, following the signing of a memorandum of understanding on youth and sports.

Morocco and Serbia are eager to strengthen bilateral relations in the spirit of friendship, cooperation, and respect for territorial integrity and national sovereignty, said Dacic, noting that talks with Bourita focused on issues of shared interest. "We have agreed to continue our excellent coordination within international organizations," he said.

At the economic level, the Serbian Minister said that the two countries decided to further strengthen economic cooperation ties to match the level of political relations.

For his part, Bourita expressed on this occasion the support of Morocco for Serbia's territorial integrity, noting that the Kingdom is "against unilateral declarations of independence".

He added that the talks with Dacic touched on the development of economic relations through the establishment of a Business Council aimed at using the potential for cooperation in the fields of trade, investment, renewable energy, agriculture and car industry.

Bourita said that the memorandum of understanding initialed with his Serbian counterpart seeks to promote bilateral cooperation in the field of youth and sports, and falls within the framework of regular political consultations between the two countries.

The Moroccan delegation accompanying the minister at this event includes Moroccan Ambassador in Belgrade Mohamed Amine Belhaj, and Director of European Affairs at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Redouane Adghoughi.

Bourita's visit in Belgrade is the first leg of a tour to the Balkan region that would take him to Bucharest (Romania) and Sofia in Bulgaria.
