Geneva – The International Organization for Migration (IOM) “will spare no effort” to support Morocco in the implementation of its migration policy, IOM Director General William Lacy-Swing said.
He made this statement in a recent meeting with Morocco’s permanent representative in Geneva, Ambassador Mohamed Aujjar, who informed him of the latest developments of the second phase of the Kingdom’s campaign to regularize the legal situation of undocumented Sub-Saharan nationals.
“Morocco is showing the way to a much better humanitarian and benevolent approach to migrants,” Lacy-Swing pointed out.
He noted that the Moroccan initiative to regularize the legal situation of migrants “demonstrates a coherent, comprehensive, humanist and responsible approach”, adding that the international community praises efforts made by Morocco to improve migrants’ socio-economic living conditions.
IOM Director General noted that this initiative will require significant human and financial resources, adding that his organization is ready to provide “all possible assistance”.
He also congratulated Morocco on its return to the African Union, noting that “this historic return will open new horizons to its relations with African countries and will have a positive impact on migration and migrants.”
