Morocco on Monday offered to provide intelligence assistance in investigations into Sunday’s terror attacks in Cote d’Ivoire.
Moroccan King Mohammed VI made the pledge in a phone call with President of Cote d’Ivoire Alassan Ouattara.
Two soldiers and six assailants were killed in the attacks that targeted three beach resort hotels.
“Morocco will send a team to support Ivorian authorities in the probe,’’ the King’s office said in a statement.
The statement said that the monarch expressed his sincere condolences and deep compassion.
According to a report, Morocco and Cote d’Ivoire enjoy strong ties.
The Report says Morocco is the largest investor in Cote d’Ivoire, while dozens of Ivorian preachers have received religious training in Morocco.
