Morocco’s Hammouchi Receives FBI Director

The Director General of National Security and Territory Surveillance Abdellatif Hammouchi received, Tuesday in Rabat, Christopher Wray, Director of the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation, who is on a working visit to Morocco leading a high-level delegation, said a statement from the Directorate General of Territory Surveillance (DGST).

This working visit is the second of its kind under the joint action program between the two parties, after a first visit by the Director General of National Security and Territory Surveillance to the United States of America in June 2022, during which he met with the director of U.S. intelligence services, the president of the Central Intelligence Agency and the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, said the same source.

“This new meeting was an opportunity for both parties to review the bilateral cooperation relations distinguished between, on the one hand, the Directorate General of National Security and the Directorate General of Territory Surveillance, and, on the other hand, the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation, and exchange about emerging threats and security challenges relating to various phenomena related to transnational crime,” explained the statement.

During these talks, the two sides discussed mechanisms to combat the movement of terrorist organizations’ fighters through border crossings, and promote the exchange of information about these fighters, in addition to consolidating operational cooperation in the fight against threats related to chemical, biological and nuclear weapons, and to expanding the scope of the distinguished bilateral collaboration in the field of counter-terrorism to include the Sahel-Saharan area.

This new visit reflects the level of advanced bilateral cooperation between the Moroccan security services and law enforcement agencies in the United States, as an extension of the deep strategic cooperation linking the two countries in several areas, based on a common commitment to strengthen and develop this cooperation in the service of security and regional and international stability, the same source added.
