"The resolution of the Palestinian issue is the key to stability in the Middle-East," Jazouli pointed out, adding that the Kingdom of Morocco "appreciates the constructive peace efforts of the U.S Administration with a view to achieving a lasting, just and equitable solution to this issue".
Morocco "hopes that a constructive peace efforts with a view of achieving a realistic, just, lasting and applicable solution to the Israeli Arab conflict will be launched, with the aim of satisfying the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people towards achieving an independent and sovereign State with Jerusalem East as its capital and give the opportunity to the people of this region to live in dignity, prosperity and stability", he added.
Morocco "followed with interest the peace plan of the US President Donald Trump on the Israeli Palestinian issue," Jazouli said, adding that "in view of the importance of this vision and its scope, Morocco will examine its details very carefully".
Already, Morocco has noted elements of convergence with the principles and options that it has always defended in this matter, including the two-State solution and negotiation between the two parties "as the preferred approach to reach any solution while maintaining an openness to dialogue," he added.
"Acceptance by the parties of the various elements is, indeed, fundamental to the implementation and sustainability of this plan", Jazouli noted, adding that in this context while the economic dimension is important, it must be complemented by a political dimension.
The Kingdom "considers that the status of Jerusalem must be preserved," the Moroccan official said, adding that "the final decision must be discussed between the parties in accordance with international legality."
Morocco was represented at this meeting which was attended by Palestinian President, Mahmoud Abbas, by a delegation led by Jazouli.
