African Union: Rabat pleads for peace, security & development in Africa
Morocco has stressed the need to explore the best means to support Burkina Faso, Chad, Guinea, Mali and Sudan in their political transition while providing them with the necessary assistance to ensure peace, security and their development.
Addressing the Peace and Security Council (PSC) of the African Union (AU) convening in Addis Ababa, Morocco’s Permanent Representative to AU Mohamed Arrouchi called for a multidimensional approach focusing on peace, security and development without forgetting the population of these five brotherly countries and especially their young people.
However, the political, social and economic reality of these countries must be fully grasped to ensure success of such an actionable approach, underlined the diplomat.
He also urged the African Union departments of health, infrastructure and education to step in and support these countries to enable them achieve lasting peace and stability.
In February, Morocco has been re-elected member of the PSC for a three-year term. The PSC is the standing decision-making organ of the AU for the prevention, management and resolution of conflicts.
The re-election of Morocco is a recognition of the key role the country plays for peace, security and development in the continent.
