Budapest, April 24 (MTI) – During a visit to Morocco on April 20-22, Justice Minister László Trócsányi had talks with local government officials on steps to be taken against migration and terrorism, the justice ministry said in a statement on Sunday.
Trócsányi met Abdelilah Benkirane, Morocco’s prime minister, and Mustafa Faris, the country’s supreme court president. He also negotiated with the minister responsible for migration affairs and the foreign minister.
Morocco is a key country in terms of maintaining stability in the Middle East and Africa as well as cooperation between Africa and Europe, the statement said. Hungary is ready to share its experiences in reforming the justice system, it added.
Cooperation in justice affairs is not for its own sake only but also serves as a way to advance fast-developing economic ties, the ministry said. Morocco serves as a good example to other countries in the region with its effective action taken against migration and terrorism, it added.
The minister told his interlocutors that Hungary would offer one hundred Stipendium Hungaricum scholarships to Moroccan students wishing to study here, the statement said.
