Emergency humanitarian aid, sent by Morocco on high instructions from HM King Mohammed VI to the Republic of Mozambique after the recent hurricane Idai that struck the country, arrived Sunday in the city of Beira (east).

Delivered to Mozambique on board four Royal Armed Forces (FAR) aircrafts, this 39-ton humanitarian aid package, consisting of tents (200), blankets (2000) and basic food items, was handed over to the Mozambican authorities by the Moroccan ambassador in Maputo, Abdelali Rahali.

Speaking on this occasion, the Mozambican minister of Agriculture and Food Security, Higino De Marule, expressed his thanks and gratitude to HM the King for this gesture of solidarity towards the people of Mozambique following Cyclone Idai, which affected several provinces in the center of the country, stressing that Morocco's solidarity "does not surprise us since the Moroccan and Mozambican peoples are united".

He also noted that the situation after this natural disaster is improving daily thanks to the support of the international community and the efforts of Mozambican citizens.

For his part, the Moroccan ambassador to Mozambique said that this gesture of solidarity represents a strong and sincere expression of Morocco's African policy based on mutual assistance and support.

The opening of the Moroccan embassy in Mozambique is a signal of a new impetus in bilateral cooperation based on mutual respect and sincere fraternal ties, he underlined.
