Morocco and France have reestablished their legal and judicial cooperation, and reached an agreement to amend the Mutual Assistance Convention.

Following intense discussions that have been taking place for several months by the governments of both countries, this amendment was initialed on January 31, 2015 in Paris by French Minister of Justice, Christiane Taubira, and Minister of Justice and Liberties, Mustapha Ramid.

These discussions have been guided by the clear guidelines and continued commitment of the two Heads of State, HM King Mohammed VI and President François Hollande, to put an end to this situation and endeavor to preserve the exceptional partnership that characterizes the relationship between the two countries.

French Justice Minister Christiane Taubira and her Moroccan counterpart Mustapha Ramid, have agreed on a text amending the French-Moroccan Mutual Assistance Convention, which allows for promoting more efficient cooperation between the judicial authorities of the two countries in a sustainable way and strengthening information exchange, in full respect of their legislation, judicial institutions and international commitments.

Both ministers hailed this result and decided for the immediate reestablishment of the legal and judicial cooperation between France and Morocco, as well as the return of liaison magistrates.

During their working sessions, both delegations discussed in depth the difficulties which led to the suspension of judicial cooperation between France and Morocco. The discussions were held in a very constructive and trustworthy environment.

This agreement is an additional contribution to the dense, strong and multidimensional relationship between the two countries.
