Morocco's Foreign Minister Salaheddine Mezouar on Saturday described Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi's election victory as a "guarantee" of security and stability in Egypt.
Mezouar said this victory would contribute to making Egypt a strong country, which will have its effect on the security and the stability of the Arab region as a whole.
The Moroccan top diplomat met the Egyptian president in Cairo earlier in the day.
Following the meeting, he said his country and Egypt have common aspirations and a shared will to work together and shoulder their historical responsibilities, given the current conditions of the Arab region.
Mezouar arrived in the Egyptian capital on Friday, coming from Moscow. He is expected to leave Cairo on Sunday.
Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shukri said al-Sisi's meeting with Mezouar was a good opportunity for consultation on the challenges facing both Egypt and Morocco.
He added that the Moroccan minister also delivered a message to al-Sisi from Moroccan King Mohamed VI, noting that the Moroccan King expressed interest in closer economic, political and social ties with Egypt in the future.
This is the second time al-Sisi meets Mezouar who visited Cairo on June 8 to attend the President's inauguration.Güncelleme Tarihi: 06 Temmuz 2014, 00:07
