Japan extended about ¥10.8 billion in low-interest yen loans to Morocco on Friday to help the country upgrade sewerage systems in regional areas, with Foreign Minister Koichiro Genba and Moroccan Economics and Finance Minister Nizar Baraka exchanging notes to that effect.

Genba, who is visiting the North African nation, said during separate talks with Prime Minister Abdelilah Benkirane and Foreign Affairs and Cooperation Minister Saad-Eddine el-Othmani that Japan will continue to support Morocco’s democratization, including efforts to reduce regional disparities and develop industries, according to Japanese officials.
