Washington – Morocco’s ambassador to the USA Rachad Bouhlal called, on Tuesday in Washington, for win-win partnerships between Africa and the United States which makes human and socio-economic development of African populations a top priority.
Speaking at a round table organized at the congress headquarters upon the initiative of the Lugar Institute for Diplomacy and Congress on the theme of “regional solutions for challenges in Africa”, Bouhlal underlined that Africa needs, now more than ever, win-win partnerships and projects of human and socio-economic development so that it could address security challenges which threaten its political stability and economic emergence.
These challenges can be solved only through genuine cooperation, beneficial partnership and respect for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of states, he stressed, noting that it is now up to African countries to address these challenges by strengthening South-South cooperation and regional integration and adopting a “holistic” approach that puts human development and political and economic reforms in the first place.
Referring to the Moroccan-African relations, Bouhlal noted that the Kingdom, under the leadership of King Mohammed VI, has established a solid cooperation model with African partners, noting that the recent tour that the Sovereign made in several countries of the continent is the perfect illustration of the Kingdom’s commitment to the cause of development in Africa and South-South cooperation.
