Speaking at the end of a meeting with Moroccan Prime Minister, Driss Jettou, Jagland noted that they had exchange of views on the Sahara issue. "I benefited a lot from what the Prime Minister told me and I will bring it back to Norway," to examine it, he went on to say.
He stressed that the meeting had tackled several issues of common interest, mainly the means to further develop bilateral relations which he described as "very good", particularly on the economic level.
The meeting also touched on the situation in the Middle East and threats looming in the Maghreb region, in particular terrorism.
Echoing him, the Minister in charge of Relations with the Parliament, Saad El Alami, underlined that the visit was successful and enabled the Norewegian MP to hold talks with several Moroccan officials on various issues of interest to the kingdom, notably the territorial integrity.
It also enabled him to enquire about changes witnessed by the North African country and the full-scale institutional reforms launched by it, he added.
Jagland had arrived on Saturday in Morocco for a five-day official visit and had talks with many Moroccan top-level officials, namely Foreign Minister, the Speakers of the upper and lower houses of the Moroccan Parliament and the Chairman of the Royal Advisory Council for Saharan Affairs (CORCAS).
