Rabat, August 21 (TNA) King Mohammed VI of Morocco on Friday delivered the royal speech On 68th Anniversary Of The Revolution Of The King And The People. In his addressed re mend people on how there is no better occasion to remember the values of loyalty and of sacrifice for the sake of the homeland’s freedom and independence than the commemoration of the Revolution of the King and the People.
"This is more than just a historical event. It is an ongoing revolution which has inspired successive generations, celebrating the same spirit of true patriotism and eagerness to defend the homeland, its institutions and sacred values.
This commemoration falls a matter of days before the elections. It also coincides with the launch of a new set of projects and reforms that will be carried out within the framework of the new development model and the national charter for development" he said.
The upcoming general, regional and local elections will be held on the same day, a fact which attests to the vibrancy of the country’s democratic experience and the maturity of the Moroccan political system, he informed.
He further said that he believed that a "state’s strength comes from institutions and from the unity and cohesion of the nation’s components. That is our weapon for the defense of our country in times of adversity, crisis or threats."
This was clearly confirmed by the carefully planned attacks mounted recently against Morocco by some countries and organizations known for their hostility towards our country, he added while pointing out that Morocco is a target because it is a country steeped in history - it has existed for more than twelve centuries, not to mention the nation’s longstanding amazing history - and it is governed by a citizen-based monarchy which has existed for more than four centuries, and which is rooted in a solid bond between the throne and the people.
"Morocco is also a target because of the security and stability it enjoys; these are invaluable assets, especially in light of the upheavals characterizing today’s world. Nevertheless, and by the grace of the Almighty, Morocco enjoys a sterling reputation and indisputable prestige. It also has a solid network of relationships and connections and is a trustworthy, credible nation at the regional and international levels" he added.
