U.S. Hails HM the King’s Role in Supporting Peace in MENA Region
Rabat – U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for International Organization Affairs Michele Sison on Wednesday in Rabat praised the role of HM King Mohammed VI in supporting peace and security in the MENA region and around the world.
“We highly appreciate the role of His Majesty King Mohammed VI in supporting peace and security in the Middle East and North Africa and worldwide,” Sison said at a press conference following her talks with the Minister of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation and Moroccans Resident Abroad, Nasser Bourita.
She noted that the meeting provided an opportunity to talk about the significance of human rights as well as Morocco’s recent election to the UN Human Rights Council.
In order to examine how the UN’s programs help regional economic growth, the lives of women and youth, and assistance to refugees and irregular migrants, Sison announced an impending meeting with the UN country team. Our Moroccan partners “take extremely seriously” these challenges.
