(MENAFN- Kuwait News Agency (KUNA)) The Kingdom of Morocco and the Russian Federation signed on Thursday a new fishing partnership agreement.

Today's agreement was signed by Moroccan Minister of Agriculture and Fisheries Aziz Akhannouch and Constantine Dikin, the delegate of the Russian Federal Agency for Fisheries to the second edition of Halieutis fishing exhibition, being held in Agadir between February 13 and 17.
