Morocco's prime minister in Dakar summit on anti-terrorism pact
Regional-Senegal, Politics, 10/16/2001
Thirty African countries, including Morocco, which will be represented by Prime Minister Abderrahmane Youssoufi, will be taking part this October 17 in the African anti-terrorism summit in Dakar.
Twenty heads of state will also be attending the conference convened by Senegalese president, Abdoulaye Wade, to look into an African anti-terrorism pact devised by Wade.
In addition to African representatives, observers and top representatives of France and the USA, international partners are expected in the summit.
Senegalese foreign minister, Sheikh Tidjane Gadio, told diplomats it is necessary that Africa takes part in the world efforts to fight terrorism, arguing that the convention on terrorism adopted in 1999 in Algiers by the Organization of African Unity is flawed as some member-countries could refuse to extradite a terrorist to another member state.
