    Morocco expects that Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev will pay an official visit to the African country in 2017, however no specific date has been set yet, Ambassador of Morocco in Moscow Abdelkader Lecheheb told Sputnik on Saturday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — He added that that the date would be settled right after the formation of the new cabinet.

    "The visit of Mr. Medvedev to Morocco is expected this year. There is no specific date, because there is no government [in Morocco]," Lecheheb said.

    The African nation has no government since the parliamentary election in October 2016, because the negotiations between the country's political parties had come to a standstill.
