Speaking at the event’s closing ceremony, the Council’s Secretary General, Mohamed Yessef, underlined that the Ulema unanimously commend the implementation of the reforms that aim to better organize the domain of religious affairs, in conformity with the orientations of Amir Al Mouminine (Commander of the Faithful), HM King Mohammed VI.
