Ambassador to UN Points Up Royal Diplomacy’s Axes to Students of London School of Economics

During a seminar hosted by the London School of Economics (LSE) on Tuesday, Omar Hilale, Morocco’s ambassador and permanent representative to the UN, gave a presentation outlining the fundamental pillars of Moroccan diplomacy under His Majesty King Mohammed VI.

Hilale gave a thorough presentation on the Kingdom’s traditional diplomacy within the context of this academic conference, which was organized within the framework of the LSE Moroccan Society and the LSESU United Nations. The Kingdom’s traditional diplomacy is rooted in a long history of diplomatic relations with several countries of the world for more than six centuries.

He also emphasized the Kingdom’s advanced standing with the European Union and the strong and dependable alliance it enjoys with Arab and Islamic nations. He concluded by saying that Morocco has also made its openness to the Asian and American continents manifest through an extensive diplomatic network and friendship and cooperation ties that demonstrate the Kingdom’s cultural, civilizational, and economic influence.

In reference to the African component of Morocco’s foreign policy, Hilale emphasized that “as an African country, Morocco has always anchored its relations in a policy of South-South cooperation with African countries, based on historical ties and committed to the socio-economic development of the continent.”

The Moroccan diplomat engaged in a fruitful discussion with LSE students on a range of subjects, including the Kingdom’s economic diplomacy, the plan for the territorial integrity and autonomy of the Moroccan Sahara, and “soft diplomacy” through the use of sport, particularly in light of the historic performance of the Moroccan national football team that marked the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

Together with the LSE United Nations Society, a multilateral debate space established by LSE students on their campus, the LSE Moroccan Society is a student organization that seeks to increase knowledge of political, economic, and social concerns in Morocco.

Students ask distinguished speakers to share their experiences and present possibilities to work for global institutions like the United Nations through these two venues.
