Rabat - Latifa Larousni

The Moroccan government approved on Thursday a bill on a military and technical cooperation agreement between Morocco and Jordan.


The deal, which was struck in Amman in July last year, puts the legal framework for military cooperation between the two countries, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation Nasser Bourita told the cabinet.


It guarantees the confidentiality of information shared between the two sides and bans releasing data to third parties, such as governments or institutions and individuals.


The government also approved Thursday a bill on cyber security to draft laws on supporting the digital economy.
