US Trade Representative Press Conference
"President Bush and King Mohammed have spoken on a number of occasions about the very close friendship that the United States and Morocco have built over the years. It's a friendship with a very long history that began more than two centuries ago, in 1777, when Morocco was the very first nation to recognize the sovereignty of a newly independent United States. The Treaty of Peace and Friendship between the U.S. and Morocco, negotiated in 1787, is the longest unbroken treaty relationship in U.S. history."
