Initiatives and reforms conducted by Moroccan king Mohammed VI in
various fields have had "a positive and decisive impact" on the
conclusion of a free trade agreement with the United States, said, here
Thursday, Moroccan Premier Driss Jettou.
Moroccan police armed with truncheons on Wednesday broke up a sit-in by protesters opposed to a free trade deal with the United States which they say could hurt the North African country’s most vulnerable people.
Witnesses say police used batons to break up 200 people protesting in Rabat against US-Morocco free trade deal.
