Africa Union: Rabat pushes for AU PSC reform, advocates primacy of UNSC in conflicts resolution
Morocco is pressing for the reform of the Peace and Security Council (PSC) of the African Union (AU) and advocates the primacy of the UN Security Council in conflicts resolution for the sake of global peace and security.
Addressing the first meeting of the new PSC held Friday in Addis Ababa, Morocco’s Permanent Representative to the AU Mohamed Arrouchi said the North African Kingdom and its sister African countries want the reform of the PSC to enhance the transparency of its working methods and its decision-making process.
During its three-year mandate within the PSC, Morocco will focus on preventive diplomacy, especially mediation, to reach peaceful and sustainable solutions to the crises rocking the African continent, said Ambassador Arrouchi.
Serving as a member of the PSC is an opportunity for the Kingdom to showcase its comprehensive and multidimensional approach seeking peace and security in Africa, said the diplomat.
The Moroccan approach is capable of reaching and building stability and prosperity to which the African peoples aspire, said Arrouchi, calling for the respect of the principles of neighborliness and non-interference in the internal affairs of States.
The re-election of Morocco as a member of the AU Peace and Security Council is a recognition of the trust and credibility the North African Kingdom enjoys across in the Continent, added the diplomat.
It is also a recognition of the central and active role played by Morocco for the maintenance and consolidation of peace and security in Africa in line with the wise Royal vision based on south-south solidarity cooperation, undermined Mr. Arrouchi.
