Middle East: US Praises HM the King’s Commitment to Peace and Security

During a telephone call Wednesday with the Minister of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation and Moroccan Expatriates, Nasser Bourita, the U.S top diplomat also welcomed continued “close” cooperation between Morocco and the United States, according to a press release issued by the State Department spokesperson.

The two officials also discussed efforts to prevent escalation in the Middle East region.

During the extraordinary session of the Arab League Council at the level of foreign ministers which was dedicated to the situation in Palestine, held Wednesday in Cairo, Bourita underlined that HM King Mohammed VI has continuously called for moving away from the logic of conflict and violence to promote that of peace, cooperation, and the construction of a prosperous space for all the peoples of the region.

Bourita also expressed Morocco’s readiness to join any Arab and international efforts aimed at realizing the aspirations of the Palestinian people for the establishment of an independent state with East Al-Quds as its capital, based on the borders of June 4, 1967, in accordance with the internationally agreed two-state solution.

US Secretary of State, Antony Blinken, has praised His Majesty King Mohammed VI’s commitment to peace and security in the Middle East.
