Jakarta (ANTARA) - Indonesian Minister of Defense Prabowo Subianto, through his press statement on Saturday, expressed keenness for defense cooperation between Indonesia and Morocco to be boosted in future.

On Friday, Subianto received a visit from Morocco's Ambassador to Indonesia Ouadia Benabdellah at the Ministry of Defense Office, here.

The minister lauded the visit made by Morocco's ambassador to Indonesia and the defense cooperation established with Morocco.

"Indonesia lauds the good relations and defense cooperation built with Morocco, which is based on three pillars," he remarked.

These pillars comprise developing mutual trust, bolstering defense capacity, and encouraging independence of the defense industry.
