In a joint statement, these institutions highlighted the successful experience of Imams' employment in Spanish Mosques, during the month Ramadan over the past years, as part of the collaboration between the AME, the Minister of endowments and Islamic Affairs, and the Higher Council of Ulema.

These Moroccan Institutions are official and experienced in the field of Imam training and management of religious matters, the statement underlined

This collaboration is meant to promote the universal values of tolerance, security, peace, coexistence, moderation, and to fight all forms of extremism and hatred, the Spanish religious institutions said.
