Choosing Morocco to Host 10th Session of International Parliament for Tolerance and Peace Confirms its Leading Role – Speaker

The choice of Morocco to host the 10th session of the International Parliament for Tolerance and Peace, due on July 13-15 in Rabat and Dakhla, confirms the country’s leading role in supporting world peace and rejecting wars and all forms of extremism, according to the Speaker of the House of Representatives (Lower House), Rachid Talbi Alami. The distinguished place occupied by Morocco at this level has prompted this parliamentary body under the Global Council for Tolerance and Peace (GCTP) – an international organization that enshrines and disseminates the noble values of tolerance and peace among peoples and states according to the principles of the United Nations- to choose the Kingdom to host its 10th session, which will examine tolerance and peace-related issues, Talbi Alami told M24, MAP’s 24-hour rolling news channel. This Wednesday, the session will be marked by a meeting of the Board of the International Parliament for Tolerance and Peace, in addition to the meetings of the Parliament’s Internal Committees in charge of Peacebuilding, Women and Youth Committee, Foreign Affairs, Sustainable Development, Legal Affairs, and Counter-Terrorism, he said. The plenary of the session will be held the next day and the rest of the proceedings will be held in the city of Dakhla, Talbi Alami added. With the participation of over 80 parliamentarians from different countries, the Session shall offer the opportunity to discuss several issues related to tolerance and peace and will culminate in a Final Declaration. Talbi Alami highlighted, in this sense, the remarkable role of the Moroccan parliamentary diplomacy that supports the tireless efforts made at the official level to defend the supreme interests of the nation, particularly the issue of territorial integrity. The GCTP convenes its international parliament once every quarter and can hold an extraordinary session if necessary. The Global Parliament for Tolerance and Peace discusses issues referred to it by the General Assembly and the Presidium. It also examines international developments related to tolerance and peace and makes appropriate recommendations. The CGTP works to spread the culture of tolerance and aims, among other things, to combat discrimination, racism, intolerance and religious, ethnic and sectarian extremism and to develop the rules of international law promoting the principles of tolerance for peace.
