Nine Former US ambassadors to Morocco Hail Morocco's stabilizing role in the region

11/20/2013 (press release: media1press)

The nine ambassadors, who served in Morocco over the past 32 years under five presidents, urge President Obama “to seize the opportunity” of the visit to Washington by HM King Mohammed VI, “especially in these times of tumult and instability in the Middle East, North Africa, and the Sahel”, to “strengthen our strategic partnership”.

“Morocco has been steadfast in its alliance with the US, and now is the time to support Morocco’sefforts to achieve our shared goals for the region”, the letter stresses, pointing out that “despite instability in the region, King Mohammed VI has demonstrated a continuing commitment to guiding the country in the meaningful growth of democratic practice and the rule of law.”

Highlighting Morocco’s reforms and significant progress on human rights, the ambassadors insist that “Morocco continues to hold firm on its own reformist path”, calling for supporting Morocco “to consolidate its own reformist agenda and contribute to stabilizing the threatening situations in North Africa.”

“That help should begin with US efforts to support Morocco’s common sense and legitimate effort to resolve the problem in Western Sahara by granting the territory broad autonomy under Moroccan sovereignty”, the ambassadors argue, adding that “it is time for the US to make clear in the UN Security Council and elsewhere that this is the only realistic way to resolve this issue so that the international community can move on to more urgently needed solutions to the more pressing problems in the region.”
