The two men discussed bilateral relations and issues of common interest.

During this meeting, the Palestinian President commended the support given by King Mohammed VI as well as by the Moroccan government and people to the Palestinian people’s fair cause, on top of which the protection of the status of Al Quds.

President Abbas also underscored the key role played by Al Quds Committee, chaired by the Moroccan Sovereign, and by Bayt Mal Al-Quds, which support flagship projects in the holy city.
