Mr. Jazouli recalled, during his speech, that “to stay the course of the African Union's Agenda 2063, we must work together and tirelessly for, as His Majesty King Mohammed VI said, May God Assist Him, in March 2018: “building the Africa of tomorrow, the one we are going to leave to our children” “.
The Minister Delegate added that "We must act in a pragmatic, realistic and concerted manner to achieve tangible objectives to silence the guns" and proposed three major axes to strengthen the action of the African Union in the face of the illicit circulation of small arms and light weapons and the resurgence of conflicts:
- Stop the rise of terrorism by fighting against radicalism through the implementation of the triptych "prevention, education and development".
- Fight against the illicit circulation of small arms and light weapons by strengthening national systems of traceability and the exchange of information between the services and the neighboring States concerned.
- Develop a clear and precise policy for African Union peace support operations.
Mr. Jazouli concluded by recalling that "Africa is a continent which crystallizes all the hopes and all the challenges", the Moroccan official underlined, adding that "to succeed, Africa needs the convergence of all efforts to face common threats". In this regard, Morocco is resolutely committed to participating in the success of the objectives of peace and security in Africa,
