PACE President Calls HM the King’s Reforms a Model in the Region

In a recent statement made on Monday in Rabat, Theodoros Rousopoulos, President of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE), lauded Morocco’s pivotal role in fostering stable relations between Africa and Europe. Rousopoulos emphasized the significant reforms spearheaded by HM King Mohammed VI, asserting that these reforms position Morocco as a beacon of progress within the region.

Highlighting the alignment of Morocco’s recent reforms with the principles upheld by the Council of Europe, Rousopoulos underscored the nation’s commitment to democratic values and governance. His remarks came following discussions with Nasser Bourita, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation, and Moroccan Expatriates.

The close rapport between the Moroccan Parliament and the Council of Europe was also acknowledged by Rousopoulos, particularly on the occasion of the Council’s 75th anniversary this year. He commended the fruitful cooperation between the two entities, expressing his intent to bolster and fortify these ties in the forthcoming months.

Since 2011, the Moroccan Parliament has held the esteemed status of Partner for Democracy with the PACE, affording it active involvement in the activities of the Council. Building upon this partnership, Rousopoulos announced new avenues for collaboration, granting Moroccan parliamentary delegates the authority to propose recommendations and resolutions, as well as to submit amendments and request discussions on pressing matters.

This announcement signifies a deepening of the relationship between Morocco and the Council of Europe, offering Moroccan representatives increased avenues for engagement and advocacy within the international arena.
