Both countries are full members of the Group of 77.


Western Sahara Issue

In 2003, former president of Argentina Eduardo Duhalde, renewed Buenos Aires' backing to Morocco's territorial integrity. In this era of globalisation, Argentina would not tolerate separatism and the creation of microscopic entities[1], the Argentine president said at a meeting in Buenos Aires with Ahmed Kadiri, vice-speaker of the Moroccan chamber of advisors, upper house of parliament.

Argentinean ambassador in Morocco, Edgardo Piuzzi, in 2003 said that his country does not recognize Polisario and has always denounced the situation in Tindouf camps[2], in South Eastern Algeria. In an interview published by the Moroccan daily in Arabic Assahraa Al Maghribia, the Argentinean diplomat termed as shameful the detention of Moroccan prisoners in Tindouf camps, for more than twenty five years, adding that Argentina has always upheld a clear stance: The Sahara is indubitably Moroccan[2].

Economic partnership

Morocco and Argentina signed in Rabat(2000) three major agreements on trade, fisheries and cooperation between the Moroccan Export Promotion Center (CMPE) and Argentine counterpart.[3] The documents were initialed by foreign affairs minister Mohamed Benaissa and external relations minister of Argentina during the closing ceremony held in Rabat. Benaissa noted that the commission works were successful with the adoption of a large number of projects in the sectors of agriculture, fishery, housing, city planning, energy and mines, industry, equipment, tourism, investment, culture, education, scientific research and vocational training.
