    SYNOPSIS: In Brussels, European trading links with Morocco were strengthened on Friday.

    Morocco's Ambassador to the European Economic Community, M. Abdelaziz Jamai, arrived to sign a new agreement partially associating his country with the enlarged Common Market.

    Belgium's permanent Ambassador to the EEC, M. Joseph Van Der Meulen, puts his signature to the new accord, followed by M. Jamai. This agreement updates an existing one. It will cover a wide range of industrial and farming products. Under it, Morocco will be granted an eighty per cent tariff reduction on oranges and other soft fruits, olives and wheat. The accord also allows for important concessions on refined oil products. But the whole relationship will shortly be overtaken by the EEC's now comprehensive agreement with Mediterranean countries.
