On August 20, 2016, Morocco celebrated the 63rd anniversary of the Revolution of the King and the People. On this historical occasion, HM King Mohammed VI delivered a strong speech to the nation. During his speech, the Sovereign emphasized that the commemoration of the Revolution of the King and the People is a constantly renewed revolution whose torch is carried generation after generation.
‘’Besides having deep-rooted national significance relating to the Moroccan citizens’ strong attachment to their King and their sacrifice for the freedom and independence of the homeland, the celebration of this event is also associated with Morocco being part of the Maghreb and of Africa,’’ the King underlined. In this regard, the Sovereign recalled that the Revolution of the King and the People was characterized by coordination and solidarity between the leaders of the Moroccan resistance movement and the Algerian Liberation Front.
‘’Today, given the current circumstances facing Arab peoples and the Maghreb region, we are in great need of that spirit of solidarity to enable us to rise to common development and security challenges,’’ the Monarch noted. ‘’We hope that the commitment and sincere solidarity which have always bound the Algerian and Moroccan peoples will be rekindled so that we may continue to work together, honestly and in good faith, to serve Arab and Maghreb causes and rise to challenges in Africa,’’ concluded the King.
The Sovereign also seized this opportunity to pay tribute to Africa. ”For Morocco, Africa means more than just being part of a geographical area, or having historical bonds with the continent. Africa also means sincere affection, appreciation, close human and spiritual relations as well as tangible solidarity. Furthermore, Africa is the natural extension of Morocco and the embodiment of the country’s strategic depth,” the Monarch underscored. ‘’This multi-dimensional relationship puts Morocco in the center of Africa; it also means Africa holds a special place in Moroccans’ hearts. For this reason, Africa has been given top priority in Morocco’s foreign policy,‘’ stated the Sovereign.
The King went on by underlining that Morocco was one of the first countries of the South to adopt a genuine solidarity-based policy regarding sub-Saharan migrants. ‘’This integrated policy, which is rooted in humanitarian values, is designed to make sure migrants’ rights and dignity are safeguarded,’’ said the King.
The Monarch concluded his speech by calling on Moroccans living abroad to remain firmly committed to their religious values and to their time-honored traditions as they face up to the extremist and terrorist phenomenon which has nothing to do with their culture or background. ‘’Those who engage in terrorism, in the name of Islam, are not Muslims. Their only link to Islam is the pretexts they use to justify their crimes and their folly ‘’ the King pointed out.
In this respect, the Sovereign called on Muslims, Christians, and Jews to close ranks in order to tackle all forms of extremism, hatred, and reclusiveness.
