Foreign Minister, Nasser Bourita, has reiterated Friday Morocco’s unwavering support for the Palestinian cause and its opposition to unilateral actions that could escalate extremism and violence during a meeting he held with Hussein Al-Sheikh, Secretary of the Executive Committee of the Palestine Liberation Organization.
Morocco sees the Palestinian issue as a fundamental aspect of its foreign policy, and this stance remains consistent, said Bourita.
“Morocco’s position, as confirmed by His Majesty King Mohammed VI, is consistent and does not change, because the Palestinian issue is a fundamental issue in Moroccan foreign policy,” said the minister.
King Mohammed VI has expressed his commitment to the Palestinian cause on numerous occasions, including in a recent Throne Speech where he affirmed Morocco’s support for the Palestinian people’s legitimate rights, including the establishment of their state based on 1967 borders with East Jerusalem as its capital.
Morocco views peace as a strategic imperative and actively participates in efforts to achieve a just and comprehensive peace based on international references. The country is committed to opposing unilateral actions that could hinder the two-state solution or exacerbate violence in the region.
Morocco also emphasizes the importance of preventing extremism and preserving the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people. King Mohammed VI, as the Chairman of the Al-Quds Committee, plays a crucial role in preserving the cultural and legal status of Jerusalem. Morocco has allocated significant financial support for various projects in Jerusalem.
Hussein Al-Sheikh, Secretary of the Executive Committee of the Palestine Liberation Organization, commends Morocco’s historical support for the Palestinian cause and the strong ties between the two nations. He highlights Morocco’s influential role in regional politics and its commitment to advancing Palestinian rights.
There are plans for future meetings between Palestinian and Moroccan ministers, with an emphasis on intensive consultations among Arab nations to formulate a unified Arab position to protect Arab rights, with Morocco playing a pivotal role in these efforts.
