Morocco-Regional, Politics, 3/28/2001
Morocco renewed resolve to contribute to any action geared to cementing Arab ranks and to secure the Arab world security, stability and invulnerability and to spare no effort to establish a fair, lasting and comprehensive peace in the Middle East.
This came in the address that Moroccan minister of foreign affairs and cooperation, Mohamed Benaissa, read out Tuesday on behalf of King Mohammed VI before the Arab summit held in Amman March 27-28.
King Mohammed VI called Arab states to abandon any subjectivity, transcend any conjuncture consideration with responsibility, wisdom and moderation and to create a new Arab climate, so necessary to take up the challenges.
"This requires exerting huge efforts and mobilizing all potentials to draw a common vision likely to guarantee to the Arab action the necessary efficiency in order to protect Arab national rights and fulfil the aspirations and expectations of our peoples," the king pointed out, adding the experience of the past years is conclusive enough as to the importance of Arabs' cohesion and unity.
The king recalled that Morocco has unfailingly endeavored "to cement Arab ranks, promote rational and constructive dialogue and foster solidarity with its brethren regarding all decisive issues" and said "the Kingdom of Morocco remains resolved and committed to contribute to any action meant to cement and unify ranks in order to serve the shared interests of our Ummah and ensure its security, stability and invulnerability."
Touching on the Palestinian issue, King Mohammed VI underlined the seriousness of the situation in the Palestinian territories and the evolution of the peace process and said "the serious events and developments in the Palestinian territories, result of the Israeli policies against the Palestinian people, of Israel's defiance of international legality resolutions and its indifference to peace calls, require practical moves and choices and necessitate to gather all means to back the steadfastness of the Palestinian people and their national authority to snatch their legitimate rights and establish their independent state with Al-Quds Asharif as its capital."
The king stated further that despite the disappointment caused by the lack of a genuine progress in the peace process, he remains confident that the peace option shall triumph in the end. The sovereign pledged, given his responsibility as chairman of the Al-Quds Committee, to spare no effort "to establish a fair, lasting and comprehensive peace in the region, a peace guaranteeing the recovery of all the occupied Arab territories and the preservation of the Arab and Islamic identity of Al-Quds Acharif."
