In addition to the concerned factions, the diplomatic faction joined in as well. A full coverage of the ceremony was done from New York in order to enable all participants in the 2nd international week against terrorism to carry on their mission.
The new office will work on developing then implementing programs aimed at honing the defense skills for the purpose of fighting terrorism, especially when it concerns border security and management, investigations and follow-ups, prison management, disengagement, rehabilitation and integration.
The office will proceed by combining both set of skills that Moroccan experts and the UNOCT possess, which will create a complete and interesting training to African countries.
The inclusion of Morocco in this international partnership is a prominent sign of trust, respect, and the ideal leadership of our reigning monarch Mohammed VI.
