His Majesty King Mohammed VI, Supreme Commander and Chief of General Staff of the Royal Armed Forces (FAR), sent Sunday an order of the day to officers, non-commissioned officers, and privates on the occasion of the 67th anniversary of the establishment of the Royal Armed Forces (FAR).

Here follows the translation of the order of the day:

“Praise be to Allah, may peace and blessings be upon the Prophet, his Kith, and Kin,

Officers, non-commissioned officers, and privates,

On this glorious occasion, coinciding with the sixty-seventh anniversary of the establishment of the Royal Armed Forces (FAR), We address to all of you Our sincere congratulations, together with Our deep sympathy and satisfaction, while expressing to you Our great joy and contentment for the commendable actions you have achieved and are achieving for the defense of the Nation’s constants and sacralities, as well as for the true soldierlike and authentic citizen qualities, which have always been yours and shall remain rooted in the history of the Moroccan soldier, brimming with of glory and heroism.

The tasks you perform, the sincere will and selflessness you show in defending the Homeland and its territorial integrity, and your faithfulness to the Green March oath are the reasons for Our pride and esteem towards you and towards the commendable missions entrusted to the members of the Royal Armed Forces (FAR), all components, land, air, naval and Royal Gendarmerie, who watch over the Kingdom’s territorial integrity, day and night, and who defend the sacredness of the Homeland, with determination and resilience.

Officers, non-commissioned officers, and privates,

The ability to foresee the future, as well as the need to adapt to unforeseen developments and to perform multiple and varied tasks, in any circumstance and at any time, require, in the execution of Our Majesty’s Orders, continuous work to develop the planning and command system with the activation of a network of communication and information means to carry out the main missions, with discipline and professionalism. 

The geostrategic developments that are taking place at the international level require, in addition to utmost vigilance and constant adaptation, the adoption of a rational approach, both qualitative and quantitative, to strengthen Our Forces’ defensive, operational, and logistical capabilities, and to acquire modern technical means in areas as sensitive as the management of operations and defense systems, surveillance and digitalization, which require the preparation and qualification of human resources to accompany the changes.

In this context, and in addition to the development and scientific research programs launched in partnership with Moroccan universities and institutes to adhere to the development dynamics that the national industry is experiencing, We have given Our Orders for the establishment of the Royal Center for Defense Studies and Research under the Royal College of Higher Military Education, to which We have entrusted the mission of contributing to the implementation of the strategic approach to handling the problems and stakes of the defense and security system, in its global dimensions, and the creation of a space for analytical, civil and military competencies.

Officers, non-commissioned officers, and privates,

Our Majesty’s determination to lay the foundations of fraternity, solidarity, and peace, at the regional, continental, and international levels, considered a main factor in strengthening the bilateral and multilateral military cooperation links, has allowed the maintaining of solid structural relations with different partners, which has greatly contributed to strengthening Our defense system and consolidating the capital of Our Armed Forces, as a reliable partner in establishing security and promoting the values of tolerance and peace, per international conventions.

In line with Our concern to consecrate and consolidate this approach, the Royal Armed Forces (FAR) have constantly opened up to their external environment, which is manifested through the intensification of partnerships with the armies of brotherly countries, the active participation of Moroccan troops in peacekeeping operations, and the reinforcement of support to brotherly African countries in the field of training and education in Our military institutes and schools.

Officers, non-commissioned officers, and privates,

The constant perseverance and permanent mobilization, which you have always shown, only reinforce Our determination to continue efforts and actions so that you can have the means required to carry out multiple tasks. It is necessary, in this respect, to commend the commendable efforts that you deploy, with all your components, as well as with your counterparts of National Security, Auxiliary Forces, Civil Protection, and Territorial Administrations in the fields of emergency management, relief, and social solidarity.

While We salute you for your great spirit of discipline, determination, and perseverance during all your interventions in the field, We wish to express Our pride for your continuous mobilization in accompanying the training of a new promotion of conscripts to the military service, to which Our Majesty attaches particular attention to guarantee its success and achieve its noble goals. In compliance with Our High Instructions, the Royal Armed Forces (FAR) have mobilized, for this purpose, all their capacities and military cadres within the framework of an active partnership with public administrations and the Office of Vocational Training and Employment Promotion.

We have ensured, during the restoration of military service, that conscripts receive training in both basic military expertise and professional qualification, which will help them develop their technical, physical, and psychological capabilities, and qualify them to project themselves into the future with hope, confidence, and discipline, and be worthy of participating actively in the economic and social renaissance of the Homeland.

Officers, non-commissioned officers, and privates,

Every year, on this memorable occasion, We remember all the historical epics led by Our Glorious Ancestors and Our brave Heroes, headed by Our Grandfather, His Majesty King Mohammed V, and Our venerated Father, His Majesty King Hassan II, may Allah sanctify their souls, as well as Our valiant martyrs, who sacrificed what is dearest to them for the freedom and glory of the Homeland. They should serve as a model for you to learn from, be inspired by, and follow.

May Allah bless you all, guide your steps, reward your actions, and preserve you as a protective shield and an unbreakable barrier of Our Homeland, proud of its supreme values based on which the family of the Royal Armed Forces (FAR) was founded, and of your constant loyalty to your Supreme Commander, and keep you always attached to your sacred and eternal motto: Allah – the Homeland – the King.”
