    King Mohammed VI of Morocco will pay a visit to Russia by the end of the this year, during which a number of important bilateral agreements will be signed, Moroccan Ambassador to Russia Abdelkader Lecheheb told RIA Novosti Friday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Ambassador Lecheheb said that the preparations for the king's visit planned to take place "by the end of the year" are well underway.

    "The forthcoming visit of His Majesty the King has a historical and strategic importance, and is designed to give a strong impetus to the development and quality of bilateral relations and to deepening the strategic partnership between Russia and Morocco," Lecheheb added.

    "We are currently preparing the king's visit, under which Moroccan experts in the fields of energy, the fishing industry, military industry, logistics and agriculture, have already visited Moscow… Many agreements are to be signed during the king's visit, and some major projects [will be agreed on]," the ambassador said.

    The last time King Mohammed VI of Morocco was on an official visit to Moscow was in 2002, when a bilateral declaration on strategic partnership was signed.
