Morocco renews support to political transition process in Burkina Faso, Chad, Guinea, Mali
Morocco has renewed this Monday before the Peace and Security Council (PSC) of the African Union (AU) its strong and constant support to the political transition process in Burkina Faso, Chad, Guinea and Mali.
Morocco’s Permanent Representative to the AU and the UNECA, Mohamed Arrouchi, who was speaking at a meeting of the PSC devoted to the evolution of the political transition process in Burkina Faso, Chad, Guinea and Mali, stressed the crucial role of the AU Peace & Security Council in identifying the most effective ways and means to accompany and support these friendly and brotherly countries in their political transition process, in order to enable them to restore political stability and social peace.
The Moroccan diplomat also reiterated during this meeting held by videoconference the call of Morocco to the entire international community to pay particular attention to the security and humanitarian challenges facing all countries in the Sahel region.
Arrouchi who called for increased regional cooperation to address these challenges, advocated an inclusive, collective and multidimensional approach in coping with security, stability and development issues, involving all countries that are directly or indirectly affected by the evils of instability and unconstitutional change of governments.
Regarding the integrated strategy for the Sahel, the Moroccan diplomat recalled the commitment of Morocco, linked to this region by age-old and multiform relations, to contribute with the international community to the consolidation of an inclusive governance and the anchoring of an integrated and sustainable development for the benefit of the populations of the region’s countries.
He stressed, in this regard, that the implementation mechanisms of these strategies should involve all African countries, emphasizing the importance of the relevant sub-regional organizations, namely the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), the Community of Sahel-Saharan States (CEN-SAD) and the G5-Sahel in the implementation of strategies aimed at establishing sustainable stability in the Sahel region.
