Morocco, Burundi Determined to Give New Impetus to Inter-parliamentary Cooperation

This willingness was reaffirmed by the House of Advisors and the Senate of Burundi who agreed to further strengthen inter-parliamentary relations and identify new areas of work and the establishment of a fruitful partnership.


In a joint statement issued Tuesday after a meeting between speaker of the House of Advisors, Naama Mayara, and president of the Senate of Burundi, Emmanuel Sinzohagera, on the occasion of the holding of the 9th Consultative Meeting of the Association of Senates, Shoora and Equivalent Councils in Africa and the Arab World (ASSECAA), the two officials welcomed this meeting which testifies to the strength of political relations between the Kingdom of Morocco and the Republic of Burundi, relations which are marked by friendship, fraternity, cordiality and the real will to build a solid and multisectoral cooperation.


Mayara and Sinzohagera considered that this meeting is part of the new impetus given to bilateral relations between the two legislative institutions, and between the two friendly countries. It is also an opportunity to focus on the prospects and ways to further strengthen these inter-parliamentary relations and identify new areas of work and the establishment of a fruitful partnership.


This same willingness was also reiterated during the meetings of the upper house speaker with vice-president of the Republic of Burundi, Prosper Bazombanza, Prime Minister, Gervais Ndirakobuca and other Burundian personalities.


The cooperation between Morocco and Burundi is no longer to be demonstrated, as evidenced by the quality of relations between the two countries based on friendship, mutual respect and solidarity at all levels and through various initiatives, as highlighted by Bazombanza who cited in this sense the opening of a Consulate General of his country in Laayoune in 2020.


Driven by a desire to consolidate bilateral relations in a framework of active solidarity and sincere friendship, Morocco works tirelessly to strengthen cooperation with Burundi as part of the vision of HM King Mohammed VI for South-South cooperation, placed around the triptych peace, security and development.


A Royal Vision for a stable, prosperous and peaceful Africa at the service of the African citizen, which has been illustrated by the Kingdom’s strong commitment to share with sister African countries its experience, expertise and know-how for a dynamic and growing South-South cooperation in all areas (health, education, training, peace, stability and socio-economic development).
