ADDRESS OF THE AMBASSADOR OF MOROCCO, REPRESENTATIVE OF HIS MAJESTY THE KING IN THE DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF THE CONGO
Ladies and gentlemen
It is with great pleasure that I address you this evening here in Kinshasa.
I opted for a first contact by limiting this modest reception to a meeting between Moroccans and Congolese.
The reason is obvious, our countries enjoy an excellent relationship at all levels.
Morocco will never forget the solidarity and courageous position of the DRC, just as we had left the OAU, and today when we decided to return to the African family. The support of the DRC was and remains sincere and solidarity.
We have a Congolese community in Morocco that is well integrated and enjoys all rights and also benefits from the new migration policy initiated by His Majesty the King that God Assists and whose second phase has just been Inaugurated a few days ago.
This new migration policy is a perfect illustration of the deep and sincere bonds that exist between our two countries, as well as with all the countries of our dear continent.
If we were outside the AU in recent years, we have never left Africa, we are there through our projects and cooperation programs at all levels: diplomatic, economic, cultural and religious. ..
We believe in Africa. We trust in Africa solidarity, generosity, richness and humanity. We believe in the sincere spirit of South-South cooperation.
It is in this spirit that I express the will of my country to strengthen and revitalize bilateral cooperation with the DRC, this great country, not only by its size, but also by its great people and its countless wealth.
I wish with all my heart peace, stability and progress at the DRC.
I would also like to take this opportunity to wish you a Merry Christmas and a very happy New Year.
