Moratinos Highlights King Mohammed VI’s Leadership in Promoting Peace, Understanding And Mutual Respect
His Majesty King Mohammed VI promotes an “exemplary” policy of mutual respect and plays an “essential” role in promoting peace, moderation, understanding and reconciliation between different countries, said Miguel Angel Moratinos in an interview with MAP.
On the eve of the 9th Global Forum of the Alliance of Civilizations of the United Nations, held these 22 and 23 November 2022 in Fez.
The High Representative for the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations (UNAOC) persisted, “Morocco is a country at the crossroads where different cultures and influences have lived throughout its history,” indicating that Morocco is and has always been a “sanctuary of peace and coexistence” under the “leadership” of King Muhammad VI.
The UN official assured that “it is not simply a matter of promoting tolerance to accept mutual respect, but to understand each other better, to know each other better, and to work together for a better world. The visit of Pope Francis and his meeting with His Majesty the King have reaffirmed, even more, this understanding and willingness to dialogue.
“Morocco implements these values in terms of religious respect. The Jewish community has gained recognition like no other Arab country,” said the former head of Spanish diplomacy.
Moreover, Miguel Angel Moratinos pointed out, “His Majesty the King has been kind enough to hold this Forum in Fez, a city with a long tradition of respect and coexistence of religions”.
Adding that “Fez, a dynamic city that has changed enormously, retains all this heritage and historical legacy that makes it a symbol of peace and tolerance, which guarantees the success of the forum”.
