Foreign Minister Nasser Bourita said he is "pleased" with the results of the 30th AU Summit of Heads of State and Government, which ended on Monday in Addis-Ababa.
"Morocco has several reasons to be satisfied with its participation in the 30th AU Summit," Bourita told a press conference after the African summit.
A year after its return to its African institutional family, Morocco has actively participated in several meetings and activities by the pan-African bloc, said the minister, noting that the 30th AU summit was marked in particular by the presentation of the report of HM King Mohammed VI on the issue of migration.
This is a fundamental question for Africa, a crucial issue for the relation between the continent and its partners and a theme that brings together the economic, security, political and social aspects," he said.
The report of HM the King was well received by the African Heads of State and Government, he noted, stressing that the Sovereign has insisted that this report be prepared on the basis of an advisory and participatory approach.
He added that the report was elaborated according to a pragmatic and realistic approach regarding the issue of migration, an approach that dispels misunderstandings, rectifies stereotypes and presents the realities of migration in the African continent.
In this report His Majesty the King did not stop at making a diagnosis but offered an approach to manage this issue, on the basis of shared responsibility and a solidarity-based and humanistic approach, he noted.
Commenting on Morocco's election to the AU Peace and Security Council, Bourita said that Morocco was able to collect 70 percent of votes by AU member countries, despite the desperate attempts by opponents of the Kingdom to counter this candidacy.
"Finally, African wisdom won and Morocco has been able to have access to this important body," he said, adding that Morocco will make a constructive contribution to the work carried out by this AU central body.
On the question of the Moroccan Sahara, Bourita said that the 30th AU summit reiterated the validity of the resolution adopted by the organization at its 29th summit, held last July in Addis-Ababa, which urges the AU to support UN efforts to find a political solution to this issue, he added.
This resolution "confirms the leadership of the United Nations to resolve this issue," said the minister.
