Arab Summit Commends Morocco’s Initiatives to Counter Terrorism, Extremism

In its decision entitled “The preservation of Arab security, counter-terrorism and the development of the Arab system in this field”, the Summit also welcomed Morocco’s initiative to host the United Nations Programme Office for Counter-Terrorism and Training in Africa.

Arab leaders stressed the imperative to refrain from providing any implicit or explicit support to entities or individuals involved in terrorist acts, including militias and non-state armed groups.

They rejected all forms of blackmail carried out by terrorist groups, including killing hostages, threatening to kill them or demanding ransom, based on the belief that these outlawed armed entities represent a threat to the security of member States, their stability and the integrity of their territories.

In another decision entitled “Monitoring Arab interactions with climate change issues”, the Summit welcomed the positive results of the Moroccan presidency of the United Nations Environment Assembly (UNEA-6) for 2022-2024.

This decision welcomes the conclusions of the Annual Meetings of the World Bank Group and the International Monetary Fund, held on October 9-15, 2023 in Marrakech, particularly those relating to the financing of climate actions and the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals.

The 33rd Arab Summit called, on Thursday in Manama, for continuing to benefit from the Mohammed VI Foundation of African Ulema and the Mohammed VI Institute for the Training of Imams, Mourchidines and Mourchidates.
