Moroccan premier ends visit to Iran

The Moroccan prime minister, Abdurrahman Yossoufi, has ended a five-day visit to Iran, the first of its kind since relations soured after the Islamic revolution of 1979.

During his visit, Mr Yossoufi met the supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, President Mohammad Khatami and the foreign minister, Kamal Kharazi.

Several agreements were signed.

Tehran broke off diplomatic relations with Rabat in 1981, in response to Morocco's decision to allow in the exiled shah.

Relations were re-established in 1991 and have steadily improved since.
