Press Release Summary: The United States welcomes and appreciates Morocco's
endorsement of the Proliferation Security Initiative (PSI).

Press Release Body: Through its endorsement, the Government of Morocco has committed
to join 90 like-minded nations in preventing and interdicting shipments of
proliferation concern to and from states of proliferation concern and terrorists.

This is another example of the close cooperation between the United States and
Morocco to combat the greatest threats of our time: global terrorism and the
proliferation of weapons of mass destruction. The United States appreciates the
leadership and commitment Morocco has shown in addressing these challenges to
international peace and security.

With Morocco's endorsement, 90 countries on six continents are PSI participants. On
May 28, 2008, PSI participating states are meeting in Washington, DC on the occasion
of the Initiative's fifth anniversary to assess the PSI's achievements and develop
new ideas for strengthening international cooperation to stop the proliferation of
WMD, their delivery systems and related items. We will use this opportunity to
broaden and deepen our counterproliferation cooperation with Morocco and the other
PSI partner states.
