WASHINGTON, Dec 5 (KUNA) -- US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will travel next week to Morocco, Tunisia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) where she will be attending meetings with top officials, it was announced here Wednesday.
State Department Spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said in a statement that on December 11-13, Clinton will travel to Marrakech, Morocco to participate in a meeting of the Friends of the Syrian People.
She added that "this latest meeting provides an opportunity to consult with like-minded governments in the region and around the world on how best to continue support for the Syrian opposition and on efforts to end the bloodshed".
She indicated that while in Morocco, Clinton will also meet with King Mohammed VI, as well as senior Moroccan government officials, "to discuss bilateral and regional issues".
