Rabat - Mohammed VI is quite a taciturn monarch in comparison to his late father Hassan II, an eloquent speaker, keen on public speaking and giving interviews to foreign press. The son unlike the father believes more in deeds than words and, indeed, since his accession to the throne, he hardly gave any interviews to the media, be it national or foreign.
