Nigeria’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, Yusuf Tuggar, underscored, on Sunday in Seoul, Morocco’s “key” role in strengthening Korea-Africa relations.

“Morocco, a leader in several fields, including trade and business, plays a key and pivotal role in strengthening relations between Korea and the African continent,” said Tuggar, following talks with the Minister of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation and Moroccan Expatriates, Nasser Bourita, on the sidelines of the ministerial meeting organized as part of the 1st Korea-Africa Summit, scheduled for June 4 and 5 in Seoul.

In a statement to MAP, he highlighted the “historic” relations between Morocco and Nigeria, underlying the two countries’ efforts to promote peace, stability and development in Africa.

Tuggar also spoke of the Nigeria-Morocco gas pipeline project, as well as “cooperation between the two countries in the fields of fertilizers and phosphate,” affirming his country’s “readiness” to continue working alongside Morocco in this area.
