Interior Minister Receives Delegation of US Attorneys General

The visit of the US delegation aims to enquire about the Moroccan experience in the fight against terrorism and in the strengthening of the rule of law.

“We are here as group pf Western States attorneys general from the United States to offer a partnership with Morocco and we are here to learn from our Moroccan counterparts on issues relating to cyber-crimes, terrorism, human trafficking and penal code reforms,” Utah’s attorney-general, Sean Reyes, told reporters at the end of this meeting.

Reyes lauded Morocco's efforts in the fight against terrorism and radicalism, the strengthening of stability in the region and the consolidation of human rights and social justice.

“We want to acknowledge Morocco’s great support of the US,” he added, recalling that “the kingdom was the very first country in the world to recognize the US in 1777 and since that time has become a tremendous ally and partner.”

“We want to applaud our friends in Morocco for all what they have done to curve terrorism and radicalism, to help build stability in this part of the world and to be global leaders when it comes to fighting for human rights and social justice,” he added.

For his part, Idaho State Attorney General, Lawrence Wasden, lauded Morocco’s “dedication” to the Rule of Law.

 The US delegation includes eleven attorneys general representing US Western states.
