There was relief today at the news that the King's health had improved to the point where he could undertake a private visit to the United Arab Emirates
King Mohammed VI arrived in Abu Dhabi on Monday ahead of attending the celebrations of the Gulf State's 43rd national day.
Morocco holds a strong relationship with the UAE. On Monday, Morocco’s House of Representatives approved a law supporting military cooperation between Morocco and the United Arab Emirates.
The law allows the Moroccan government to provide military, security, and logistical support to the United Arab Emirates to help them fight terrorism.
Last October, Morocco had pledged its “active support” to the UAE’s fight against terrorism and the preservation of regional and international peace and stability.
