Munich – Youssef Amrani, Chargé de Mission at the King’s Office, highlighted, on Sunday in Munich, King Mohammed VI’s policy in Africa.
Speaking during a panel discussion at the 52nd Munich Security Conference (MSC) on “Africa: Keeping P(e)ace”, Amrani said that the “ambitious, audacious and avant-gardist” policy adopted by the Sovereign is based on three main principles, namely the duty of solidarity, the promotion of a space of peace and security and a continued commitment towards the socio-economic and human development of the continent.
Referring to HM the King Mohammed VI’s speech in February 2014 in Abidjan, he underlined the royal commitment to strengthen south-south cooperation which is based on the deep acquired assets, notably the civilizational, spiritual, human, geographic and economic ties.
Africa, which has multiple natural and human wealth, should rely on itself to promote a progress beneficial to all and which generates jobs and inclusive growth, he pointed out.
Amrani also shed the light on Morocco’s constant commitment to promote stability and security in Africa and to establish a coherent regional integration and a strong partnership based on solidarity and consultation in total respect of fundamental parameters, particularly resolving conflicts by peaceful means, the respect of territorial integrity of the countries and their cultural identity.
He referred in these respect to Morocco’s positive role in solving Libyan conflict and its active participation in UN peacekeeping missions in Africa.
The panel brought together Somalia President, Hassan Sheikh Mohamud, former Secreaty General of the United Nations, Kofi Annan, former Nigerian President, Olusegun Obasanjo, Ethiopian Foreign Minister, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, and Commissioner for Peace and Security at African Union, Smail Chergui.
