The Minister of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation and Moroccan Expatriates, Mr. Nasser Bourita and the High Representative of the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations (UNAOC), Mr. Miguel Angel Moratinos held talks, on September 22, 2022, on the sidelines of the 77th session of the United Nations General Assembly.

At the end of this bilateral meeting at the Permanent Mission of Morocco in New York, Mr. Nasser Bourita and Mr. Miguel Ángel Moratinos announced that the city of Fez will host the 9th Global Forum of the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations on November 22 and 23, 2022.

UNAOC High Representative voiced, on this occasion, his deep appreciation and warms thanks to HM King Mohammed VI for having kindly accepted hosting this important event, adding that the UN Secretary General will participate in the forum, says a joint statement issued by the Permanent Mission of the Kingdom of Morocco to the United Nations and UNAOC.

Expressing his gratitude for the leadership and support of HM King Mohammed VI and the Kingdom of Morocco to host this global event, the UNAOC High Representative noted that "the city of Fez was chosen in view of its ancestral character and its spiritual symbolism".

Moratinos underlined that "holding UNAOC's 9th Global Forum under HM King Mohammed VI High Auspices and deploying joint efforts by the United Nations and Morocco will guarantee the success of the 9th Global Forum".

"The 9th Global Forum of UNAOC intends to address many challenging transversal and global issues with a special focus on Africa, a continent that has not yet gained its rightful place when it comes to collective action and global mobilization," said Bourita, noting that "the choice of the Kingdom of Morocco, and particularly the historic city of Fez to host the 9th Global Forum of UNAOC is not a coincidence".

The Forum takes place against the backdrop of an extremely challenging global context marked by a wide array of global challenges ranging from the surge in violent extremism, terrorism, xenophobia, hate speech to racism, discrimination and radicalism.

Thus, finding pathways to peace, unity and solidarity rooted in mutual respect, human dignity and compassion has never been more urgent, the statement points out.
