Morocco vows to contribute to achieving AU’s agenda

The Moroccan foreign minister Nacer Bourita has met with the Chairman of the African Union Commission (AUC), Moussa Faki Mahamat, on Thursday in Addis Ababa, to discuss the place of the kingdom within the pan-African body and its active contribution to the achievement of the African agenda.During their tete-à-tete, Mr. Bourita reaffirmed to the importance that “King Mohammed VI gives support to the involvement of Morocco in the projects of the AU and to the fact that the Kingdom has strong relations to make a significant contribution to the work of the African institutional family.”

“Since Morocco’s return to the AU, a number of actions have been taken in order to make the Kingdom’s contribution effective,” the diplomat told reporters, noting that his discussions with Mahamat Faki focused on the presence of Morocco within AU structures and how the Kingdom could contribute more strongly to the achievement of the African agenda in terms of peace, stability, security and development.

The two leaders also spoke of the Commission’s action to be “constructive” on all issues, as well as the need to work towards ensuring that “the work of the Commission is not diverted to serve other agendas likely to undermine the action of the Union and of course the whole process of reform of the Pan-African bloc “.

Bourita asserted that “Morocco is convinced that the strength of the Union and also linked to the effectiveness of the Commission”, adding that the AU is to “reflect the new spirit that hovers at the level of African decision-makers “.
