FM Nasser Bourita: Morocco Welcomes Temporary Truce Agreement to End War in Gaza Strip

The Minister of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation, and Moroccan Expatriates, Nasser Bourita, praised, on behalf of Morocco, the announcement of a temporary truce agreement to end the war in the Gaza Strip. 

During a press conference on November 23 following his meeting with the Special Representative of the United Nations Secretary-General (UNSG) in Libya, Abdoulaye Bathily, Minister Bourita stated that Morocco commends the mediation efforts of Qatar, Egypt, and the United States, which led to this agreement.

Minister Bourita also hailed the major effort that has led to this agreement, which could constitute an essential milestone for a lasting and verifiable ceasefire.

The Moroccan minister noted that de-escalation, as emphasized by His Majesty King Mohammed VI on numerous occasions, most recently at the Extraordinary Arab-Islamic Summit in Riyadh, is essential to enable the delivery of humanitarian aid and to be part of a process that could lead to a lasting ceasefire.

The Moroccan official also stated that the Kingdom is confident that this truce will essentially enable the delivery of humanitarian aid and facilitate relief efforts on behalf of the brotherly Palestinian people.

Minister Bourita pointed out that the Middle East region will not be able to overcome these successive crises unless the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people to establish their independent state are recognized.

The Moroccan minister also stressed that Morocco’s commitment to a resolution to this crisis, as emphasized by His Majesty the King, requires the international community to move beyond the stage of crisis management to the stage of introducing new perspectives to achieve radical solutions to key issues, the first of which is the Palestinian people’s fulfillment of their rights.

Minister Bourita underlined the imperative of overcoming the logic of crisis management and developing prospects for peace through a genuine political process leading to a two-state solution, with a Palestinian state on the 1967 borders, with East Al Quds as its capital, coexisting side by side with an Israeli state.
