HM the king's Approach on Palestinian Question Reconciles Diplomatic Aspect with Action on the Ground

HM King Mohammed VI's approach regarding the Palestinian question reconciles the diplomatic aspect with action on the ground, said, Thursday in Rabat, minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Nasser Bourita.

The efforts of HM King Mohammed VI, Chairman of the Al-Quds Committee, are based on regular and intensive contacts with the leaders of influential countries, the Secretary-General of the United Nations and the Palestinian president, on the one hand, and on sustained action on the ground, within the framework of the Bayt Mal Al-Quds Asharif Agency, which has carried out several vital socio-economic projects in the Holy City, on the other hand, underlined Bourita in an address read on his behalf by the minister of Culture and Communication, at the opening of the 13th session of the general conference of the Islamic Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (ISESCO), held on October 11-12.

He added that "the common will of member States to pursue their policies aimed at preserving the monuments of the Holy City and protecting its tangible and intangible cultural heritage, supporting Palestinian educational institutions and carrying out socio-economic and humanitarian projects, while ensuring the means of their implementation and financing mechanisms, in order to support the resistance of Palestinians and help them achieve decent living conditions".

Bourita also stressed the need to "mobilize all means to meet the challenges facing the current international order, such as the widening gaps between North and South, the acceleration of the digital divide and unprecedented flows of migrants and refugees, the globalization of terrorism and the emergence of new phenomena linked to extremism and the lack of effective governance mechanisms", calling for concrete and lasting solutions to put an end to violence, extremism and terrorism.
