Francisco Javier Arroyo, Director-General of Andalucía Global, an agency affiliated to the Andalusian regional government, described Morocco as a “major and leading” player in the African country as it places Africa at the center of its priorities.
“Morocco plays a pioneering role in the development and progress of all African countries,” affirmed Arroyo, on May 30, at a meeting organized at the Three Cultures of the Mediterranean Foundation in Seville, Spain, to commemorate Africa Day.
In this context, the Andalusian official emphasized Morocco’s commitment to African countries and the Kingdom’s determination to develop mutually beneficial South-South cooperation.
On this occasion, the Moroccan Consul General in Seville, Sidi Sidi Abbah, emphasized Africa’s importance for Morocco’s foreign policies under the Enlightened Leadership of His Majesty King Mohammed VI, assuring that Africa and its development are “prioritized in Morocco’s foreign policies.”
The Moroccan Consul General affirmed the Kingdom’s unwavering and “constant commitment” to Africa and its causes, noting that the “Kingdom’s proactive approach to Africa’s development is based on a mutually beneficial partnership and the promotion of South-South cooperation.”
Abbah added that Morocco’s commitment and solidarity with the continent enabled the Kingdom to offer African countries its expertise and know-how to support the most vulnerable.
For her part, the Director of the Three Cultures of the Mediterranean Foundation, Concha de Santa Ana, underlined the excellent friendship and proximity relations between Morocco and Spain, particularly Andalusia.
Santa Ana stressed that the meeting is a great opportunity to better understand Africa, a continent with enormous potential in several areas regardless of the challenges it faces.
