Morocco Pledges Security Pact with Algeria

In a message to Algerian President Abdelaziz Bouteflika on Friday (July 13th), Moroccan King Mohammed VI called for increased co-operation with Algeria in the fight against terrorism. The message, which expressed condolences to the Algerian people after an al-Qaeda attack killed 10 Algerian soldiers and wounded 35 on Wednesday, said that peace and stability in Algeria "are an integral part of Morocco's security".

The King called for solid bilateral co-operation "to eradicate terrorism in our region".
Morocco raised its terrorism alert to its highest level last week, following reports of an imminent terrorist attack. The Interior Ministry confirmed Friday that 15 terror suspects have been arrested this week.
