U.S. Deputy Secretary of State to Visit Morocco at the End of June

U.S. Deputy Secretary of State, John J. Sullivan, will visit Morocco at the end of June, as part of a regional tour, said Thursday the U.S Department of State.

During his stay in Morocco, the Deputy Secretary "will meet with senior government officials to discuss a range of political, economic, and security issues," the same source said in a statement.

“Morocco's important contributions to the Global Coalition to Defeat ISIS” will be on the agenda of these discussions, the Department of State noted.

He will also meet with a group of Moroccan youth in Casablanca, as well as representatives and leaders from civil society, it added.

The U.S official’s trip is part of a tour to Europe and North Africa on June 25-29 “to discuss a range of U.S. priorities, including joint efforts to maintain an enduring defeat of ISIS and promote cooperation on regional and global security challenges.”
