Morocco Highlights Importance of New Global Governance

Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Nasser Bourita, highlighted, in New York, the importance of establishing a new global governance based on listening, dialogue, inclusiveness and common responsibility.

"The succession of crises, their frequency and the scale of their impacts clearly demonstrate the need to establish a new global governance based on listening, dialogue, inclusiveness and common responsibility," said Bourita at a meeting, organized by the Alliance of Civilizations on the sidelines of the 72nd UN General Assembly under the theme "Youth involvement: the link between establishing inclusive societies and maintaining peace."

Morocco is now more than ever aware that the future of the planet is intimately linked to the implementation of these principles and that the challenge of peace and development cannot be dealt with outside of the commitment of all international players in this direction, he noted.

Bourita added that the principles of openness and tolerance were constantly reaffirmed by HM King Mohammed VI, Commander of the Faithful, setting the tone for an unconditional commitment to bring together women and men of all origins and faiths, in order to dispel prejudices and elevate cultures to the rank of shared universal values.

The Alliance of Civilizations, by bringing together the institutions and the active forces of civil societies, has always been an opportunity for intense moments of exchange, building bridges, understanding and appreciation between us," said Bourita, highlighting the participation of these players in strengthening the capacity to manage difference together and consolidating the culture of coexistence and cooperation.

For this reason, he went on, it is important that dialogue forums, such as the Alliance, be preserved, strengthened and expanded, beyond the financial contingencies, which should not take precedence over ethical and political considerations.
