New York – The visits paid by King Mohammed VI in Africa are consolidating socio-economic stability in several countries of the continent, said on Wednesday UN Secretary general’s special advisor for Africa, Maged Abdelaziz.
The frequent trips to Sub-Saharan African countries, particularly the recent ones to countries emerging from conflicts, such as Mali and Cote d’Ivoire, and the projects that the King launches in vital sectors, contribute to consolidating the socio-economic stability in these countries, the UN official told MAP.
These projects also help create jobs, consolidating, thus social harmony as well as peace and security, he added commending Morocco’s “pioneer” and “exceptional” part in Africa as was evidenced by the kingdom’s Security Council membership which was a “decisive moment.”
Abdelaziz further argued that the Kingdom fully shouldered its responsibility within the UN security council, which earned Morocco African countries’ esteem and appreciation for efforts made to settle the crises in Congo, Mali and other African countries.
He also recalled Morocco’s major role in consolidating peace in the Central African Republic and help in reaching an agreement.
Recalling Morocco’s participation since the 60’s in various peace-keeping operations in Congo-Brazzaville, Mali, Angola and the Central African Republic, he noted that this participation has helped bring about calm and promote peace.
