US President Barack Obama will welcome King Mohammed VI of Morocco to the White House later this month, officials said Thursday.

The talks on November 22 will highlight Washington's support for Morocco's "democratic and economic" reforms, a White House statement said.

Obama was also keen to increase cooperation with Morocco on challenges including regional violent extremism, democratic transitions and economic development, the statement added.
