France and Morocco vow to fight terrorism together

The Associated Press

PARIS (AP) France and Morocco vowed to fight terrorism together and to fully cooperate on security issues, putting an end to a year of diplomatic discord.

French President Francois Hollande and the king of Morocco, Mohammed VI, met in Paris on Monday to symbolize the reconciliation of the two countries. They praised "a new dynamic of trustful and ambitious cooperation" between the two nations in a written statement.

France and Morocco officially ended a year of discord last month by re-establishing judicial cooperation. Those ties had been cut in February 2014 after French police attempted to arrest the visiting head of Moroccan intelligence in response to an activist lawsuit accusing him of torture.
