AU-EU Summit: HM the King Man of Concrete Actions, with Agenda of Proposals
HM King Mohammed VI, who participated for the first time as an African partner within the African Union in a joint meeting with the European Union, revealed himself, during Abidjan's Summit, as "the man of concrete actions, with an agenda of proposals," said, Monday, Financial Afrik, a paper specializing in finance and strategic information from Africa.
In a feature by its special envoy, Albert Savana, the paper highlighted "the greatness and leadership of the King of Morocco who, in a spirit of cohesion, spared no effort (…) and worked so that Africa speaks with one voice before the European partners."
The Royal diplomacy supports African solidarity and promotes the defense of common interests, said the author of the feature, adding that this unique Moroccan diplomacy, prompted by the King of Morocco throughout the Summit, allowed to the African Union to assert its cohesion in the face of a European bloc that came in force.
Appointed by his AU peers, in agreement with the European leaders, HM King Mohammed VI tackled the theme of migration and mobility, the paper added, noting that the Sovereign condemned with the utmost energy the humanitarian tragedy that many African migrants are suffering on the continent.
"Bearing a new vision on a continental scale, His Majesty Mohammed VI set the record straight through concrete proposals on the issue of migration," said Financial Afrik.
Morocco, which has embarked on a policy of large-scale regularization of the situation of African migrants to facilitate their integration, is very well placed to lead the reflection on the issue of migration, Savana wrote, recalling that the Kingdom had organized last October a regional meeting on migration, with the aim of gathering several opinions to lay the first foundations of an African agenda on this issue.
Furthermore, the paper noted that HM the King took the opportunity of his presence in Abidjan to consolidate ties of friendship with several leaders attending the Summit, notably French president, Emmanuel Macron, Angolan head of State, Joao Lourenço, and South African president, Jacob Zuma
