The Parliaments of Rwanda and Morocco have signed a cooperation agreement aimed at boosting relations between the two nations.
The agreement was signed on Saturday, August 19th when the Speaker of the Chamber of Deputies, Rwanda Parliament right Hon Donatille Mukabalisa received the President of Morocco’s House of Representatives Lahbib El Malki who was representing his country during President Paul Kagame’s swearing in ceremony that was held on Friday, August 18th.
Lahbib El Malki said that this is a friendly visit aimed at strengthening relations between the two nations. The agreement follows what Moroccan King agreed with Rwandan Government as previously agreed with President Kagame who visited Morocco. We believe both parliaments need the cooperation in different sectors.
Moroccan and Rwandan parliaments should fulfill their roles to reinforce ties between Rabat and Kigali through enacting laws that allow governments and ministeries of both countries to have a legal framework to strengthen bilateral ties, Hon Mukabalisa said following the signing of the agreement with Lahbib El Malki.
Both Hon Mukabalisa and Lahbib El Malki hailed the agreement on security cooperation signed by Morocco and Rwanda on October 20, 2016, in Kigali during the Kings visit to Rwanda, pointing out that this agreement on counter-terrorism and security information sharing is key in consolidating development in Rwanda.
