RABAT, Feb. 15 (Xinhua) -- The Moroccan Justice Minister Mohamed Aujjar and his Senegalese counterpart Ismaila Madior Fall vowed Thursday in Rabat to give new impetus to bilateral cooperation in the area of justice.

Speaking to the press following talks with his Senegalese peer, Aujjar said the meeting was an opportunity for the two parties to examine means to promote bilateral cooperation in this field.

The Moroccan minister expressed his country's commitment to strengthening Senegal's skills in the management of justice affairs and developing its judicial system and institutions.

This commitment is in line with the historical partnership between Morocco and a number of African states, he added.

He noted that the Moroccan-Senegalese cooperation in the area of justice covers particularly commercial justice and modernization of the judiciary.

For his part, Madior Fall hailed the excellent friendship between the two countries, characterized by a historic partnership between the two countries to further strengthen bilateral ties.

He expressed the wish of his country to benefit from the Moroccan experience in the field of justice, notably commercial justice, penitentiary policy, and the family code, commending Morocco's deep reforms in this area.
