Belgium asked for Morocco’s help in its war against terror on Monday, noting that it would be in the form of security cooperation, Anadolu has reported.
In a statement issued by the Moroccan interior ministry, the Belgium king is said to have telephoned his Moroccan counterpart, asking him to help the Belgium authorities in their war on terror through “security and intelligence” cooperation. The call was apparently made in the aftermath of the Paris terrorist attacks in which 130 people were killed.
King Mohammed VI of Morocco and the French president have met in Paris and announced common plans to fight terror, as well as to take part in reconciliation efforts for regional and international conflicts. The local media reported that the Moroccan intelligence services offered “important” information to the French that helped them to locate the whereabouts of a number of people believed to be planning suicide attacks.
