DIILS Engages with Moroccan Royal Armed Forces

Posted on: 6/6/2023

A team from the Defense Security Cooperation University’s (DSCU) Defense Institute of International Legal Studies (DIILS) recently traveled to Morocco to meet with members of the Moroccan Royal Armed Forces as part of an ongoing Security Cooperation program.

Morocco was among the very first countries in the world to recognize the sovereignty of the United States through a treaty of peace and friendship in 1786. This treaty remains the longest unbroken bilateral treaty in U.S. history.

For more than 30 years, DIILS, located in Newport, Rhode Island, has been the lead U.S. Department of Defense Security Cooperation resource for global legal engagement with Partner Nation security sector institutions and personnel. As a component of DSCU, DIILS broad mission is to advance U.S. national security and foreign policy interests by building the capacity of foreign security forces to respond to shared security challenges in a responsible, accountable, and legally compliant manner.
