Moroccan King Mohammed VI Presides Over A Meeting Of Council Of Ministers, Names Of Six New Ambassadors Approved
Rabat, October 20 (TNA) Moroccan King Mohammed VI on Thursday presided over a meeting of the Council of Ministers at the Royal Palace in Rabat. On the agenda of this important meeting was the discussion of the General Guidelines of the Finance Bill for the year 2024, as well as the approval of a draft law and a draft decree relating to the military domain, three crucial international conventions and appointments to positions of high responsibility.
The announcement of these deliberations came from the Spokesman of the Royal Palace, Abdelhak El Mrini. The Council of Ministers began with a presentation by the Minister of the Economy and Finance on the broad outlines of the Finance Bill (PLF) for the year 2024. Following these discussions, and at the proposal of the Head of Government and on the initiative of the Minister of Foreign Affairs, King Mohammed VI approved the appointment of six Ambassadors to the United Arab Emirates, Jordan, Egypt, France, China and the United States of America.
These appointments are of great importance, as they concern countries that are strategic for Morocco, with strong historical ties, multi-dimensional partnerships, and considerable influence in regional and international issues.
Among these distinguished diplomats are Ahmed Tazi, chosen to represent the King to the State of the United Arab Emirates, Fouad Akhrif, appointed Ambassadorto the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, Mohamed Ait Ouali, who will be the envoy to the Arab Republic of Egypt, Samira Sitaïl, Ambassador to the French Republic, Abdelkader El Ansari, will represent Morocco in the People's Republic of China, and Youssef Amrani, will be the King's Ambassador to the United States of America.
This diplomatic movement deserves a closer look. It encompasses six nations of major strategic importance to the Kingdom of Morocco, three of which are permanent members of the United Nations Security Council: the United States, France and China. The other three occupy prominent positions in the Arab world and within the League of Arab States.
The current geopolitical context adds an element of complexity to these diplomatic appointments. The Middle East as a whole is going through a period of turmoil, with delicate situations in Egypt, Jordan, the United Arab Emirates and the United States. In addition, the international scene is witness to a developing confrontation between the two giants, China and the United States. This turbulent climate calls for a thoughtful, pragmatic diplomatic approach.
Bilaterally, relations between Morocco and these six nations are already solid, but there is a marked desire to strengthen them, adjust their paradigms and enrich their content, in response to the changing demands of the international scene. These diplomatic appointments confirm the importance of meritocracy and professionalism within Moroccan diplomacy, with five of the six Ambassadors appointed being experienced executives from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, with intimate knowledge of their respective areas of assignment.
