An Upcoming Visit By The Spanish Prime Minister To A Global Forum In Fez Next November.

A few months after changing the official Spanish position on the artificial conflict in the Moroccan Sahara, Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez announced his intention to attend a forum in Fez next month.

Sources close to Sanchez told Spanish media that the Spanish official intends to attend the Ninth World Forum of the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations, to be organized on November 22-23 in Fez, along with his socialist predecessor Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero.

A week ago, Minister of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation and Moroccans Residing Abroad, Nasser Bourita, held talks in New York with the Deputy Secretary-General and High Representative of the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations, Miguel Angel Moratinos, on the sidelines of the 77th session of the United Nations General Assembly.

Following these discussions, which took place at the headquarters of the Permanent Mission of the Kingdom of Morocco to the United Nations, Nasser Bourita and Miguel Angel Moratinos announced that Fez would host the Ninth Global Forum of the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations on November 22-23.

According to a joint statement, the Deputy Secretary-General and High Representative of the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations affirmed that the convening of the Ninth Global Forum of the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations and the joint efforts between the United Nations and Morocco will ensure the success of this forum.

For his part, Bourita confirmed that this global meeting intends to discuss “many global and global stakes, with a special focus on Africa, a continent that has not yet occupied the place it deserves in terms of collective action and global mobilization.”

The Minister added, in this regard, that “the choice of the Kingdom of Morocco, and in particular the historic city of Fez, to host the Ninth Global Forum of the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations, is not a coincidence.”

The Ninth Global Forum of the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations will take place in an extremely challenging global context marked by a wide range of global challenges, ranging from the rise of violent extremism, terrorism, xenophobia, hate speech, racism, discrimination and radicalism.

Hence, finding avenues of peace, unity and solidarity rooted in mutual respect, human dignity and compassion is more urgent than ever.
