The Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Mr. Nasser Bourita, met on Thursday 27 April 2017 in Addis Ababa, with the President of the African Union Commission (AUC), Mr. Moussa Faki Mahamat.
These talks centered on the place of the Kingdom within the Pan-African organization and its active contribution to the realization of the African agenda.
On this occasion, Mr. Bourita reaffirmed the importance accorded by His Majesty King Mohammed VI to the involvement of Morocco in the African Union and the use of the privileged relations of the Kingdom with several African partners in favor of the dynamics of Morocco's action within its African African Union.
The Minister stressed that Morocco has chosen to focus its action on efficiency while specifying that several actions have been taken to guide Morocco's contribution in this respect.
Mr. Bourita also raised with Mr. Mahamat Faki the presence of Morocco within the AU structures and the added value of the Kingdom in achieving the African agenda in terms of peace, stability, security and development.
The two leaders agreed on the constructive scope of the Commission's action and the need to protect it from any instrumentalization that might compromise the Union's action and jeopardize the process of reform of the African Union.
In this regard, the Minister indicated that Morocco is convinced that the strength of the Union remains dependent on the efficiency of the Commission and its capacity to reflect the new spirit that motivates African decision-makers, marked by a conscience for the future of Africa, and the mobilization of its own resources as well as the will of African Heads of State to overcome the challenges in order to find effective and real solutions to the fight against terrorism, conflict resolution and an action for the development of the continent.
