Morocco, Cote d'Ivoire call for sustainable, inclusive political solutions for conflicts in Africa
Morocco and Cote d'Ivoire have called for sustainable and inclusive political solutions for crises facing Africa, a final statement issued following Morocco's King Mohammed visit to Cote d'Ivoire said.
The King and Ivorian President Alassane Ouattara reiterated their will to see a more united and solidarity-based Africa, capable of fighting efficiently and victoriously against the new forms of criminality, namely terrorism, cybercrimes, sea piracy and drug trafficking, according to the statement carried by the official MAP news agency on Wednesday.
The two leaders also urged the international community to join hands in order to eradicate these scourges for good.
Ivorian president welcomed the return of Morocco to the African Union (AU) and underlined the Kingdom's decisive role in consolidating peace and security in the continent.
Late in January, Morocco rejoined AU after a 33-year absence from the pan-African organization.
They also welcomed the excellent cooperation between Morocco and Cote d'Ivoire, which have already signed 143 agreements, stressing the need for implementing these agreements to achieve the development of their countries and the well-being of their people.
Cote d'Ivoire was the final step in an African tour that led the Moroccan king to South Sudan, Zambia, Ghana and Guinea. The tour resulted in the signing of nearly 80 agreements between Morocco and the five countries.
