Former Lebanese Presiden t: Morocco Plays 'Leading Role' for Stability & Development of Arab World

Morocco plays "a leading role" in ensuring the stability, unity and development of the Arab world, said on Wednesday former Lebanese president Amine Gemayel.

Morocco has always worked for the development and unity of the Arab world and advocated for just causes in major international forums, Gemayel told MAP on the sidelines of an international conference held in New Delhi under the theme "Changing the Security Paradigm in West Asia: Regional and International Responses".

"No one can deny the role played by the late King HM Hassan II in solving the problems of the region and promoting peace in the Middle East and the Arab world," he said.

Morocco is undergoing considerable development in several areas thanks to the reforms undertaken in several sectors, which allows it to occupy a privileged place on the continental and Arab scene, the former Lebanese president noted.

Arab countries should cooperate well with each other to address all the security challenges that threaten their stability and unity, said Gemayel.

Organized by the prestigious Indian Institute for Defense Studies and Analyses (IDSA), the New Delhi conference (5-6 September) aims to examine and analyze emerging security dynamics in the world, particularly in West Asia, and to formulate responses to all challenges and threats to security and stability in these regions.

Chairman of the Moroccan Centre for Strategic Studies, Mohamed Benhammou, who is taking part in this international conference, made a presentation, on Wednesday, on the new security challenges in North Africa, highlighting the Moroccan security approach and the role played by the Kingdom in ensuring stability and peace in the region.
