Morocco to Intensify Cooperation with OSCE to Ensure Inclusive, Resilient and Sustainable Post-Covid19 Recovery – Ambassador –

Morocco is committed to intensify its cooperation with the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) to achieve an inclusive, sustainable and resilient post-Covid-19 recovery, said, Tuesday, Permanent Representative of Morocco to international organizations based in Vienna, ambassador Azzeddine Farhane. In his address to the OSCE Mediterranean Conference, held on October 12 and 13 in Vienna under the theme “Pathway to resilience: post-pandemic recovery and security in the euro-Mediterranean region”, Farhane said that the Kingdom is committed to accelerating a green global recovery, in line with the UN Sustainable Development Goals of 2030. After reviewing the achievements of the Kingdom in the fight against the effects of the pandemic, Farhane stressed the need to rely on the promotion of socio-economic development, industrial and agricultural modernization, job creation and poverty eradication, in building the post-pandemic environment. He also stressed the importance of security in the region, in order to maintain and consolidate peace and stability in the Mediterranean and beyond, considering that “there is no sustainable development without peace and no peace without sustainable development”. “Health security, sovereignty and development are interdependent and mutually reinforcing, because health security has become, more than ever, an integral component of human security,” said Farhane, stressing “the fundamental importance of protecting our societies against all threats that pose a danger to health, stability and global security of future generations”. Morocco, he added, believes that the path to resilience lies in the development of new ways of working as well as new methods of training and education to ensure the creation of sustainable jobs and strengthening connectivity with the adoption of digital solutions.
