Defense Secretary Signs Military Agreement with Morocco

The U.S. and Morocco seek to bolster “military readiness” with 10-year agreement.

U.S. Defense Secretary Mark Esper recently toured the nations of Algeria, Tunisia, and Morocco, meeting with their military leaders and discussing ways in which they can work together in the future. National security and military readiness were the main issues in all discussions.

Secretary Esper renewed a defense cooperation plan while he met with Morocco’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Nasser Bourita late last week. The agreement extends the alliance, which has existed since 1777, through the year 2030. In a statement issued following the meeting, the agreement “serves as a road map for defense cooperation and aims to strengthen the strategic partnership between the two countries and support shared security goals”.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Defense Secretary Mark Esper as he collaborates with our national allies.
  • That the United States Military would bring the peace of the Lord wherever they go.
  • That the Lord would continually bless the relationship between the U.S. and Morocco.
