Doctors have advised Morocco's King Mohammed VI to rest for several days to recover from a viral lung infection that forced him to miss a remembrance ceremony in Paris for France's late president Jacques Chirac, the palace said on Sunday.


It said in a statement that the King had been unable to attend the commemoration event for Chirac, who died last week.


The palace noted in its statement the "strong ties" between the Chirac family and the ruling dynasty in Morocco.
