The two countries established diplomatic relations in 1961, and Morocco’s King Mohamed VI has promoted ties with Viet Nam since he was crowned in 1999.
Recent visits of high-ranking officials have built a sturdy and amicable relationship between the two countries.
Morocco’s King Mohoamed VI’s sent a letter with the recent Vietnam envoy inviting President Nguyen Minh Triet to Morocco, which the Vietnamese leader accepted with pleasure.
