At a joint press briefing with his Jordanian counterpart Ayman Safadi, following their talks in Amman, Bourita said that these positions are based on Arab references to the two-state solution and the establishment of an independent Palestinian state on the borders of June 4, 1967, with East Al-Quds as its capital.
He added that Morocco supports Jordan’s central role in the Palestinian cause and the role of HM King Abdullah II regarding the guardianship of the Islamic Holy Places in the city of Al-Quds.
The Moroccan minister stressed that His Majesty King Mohammed VI supports this role and calls for coordination with Jordan in everything that concerns the Palestinian cause and the Waqfs and Islamic Places in the Holy City of Al-Quds.
He added that the two countries are working together to support the Al Quds inhabitants and also preserve the Arab and Islamic identity of the holy city.
Bourita also highlighted the continued coordination between Morocco and Jordan within the framework of the Arab League and the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) and in all international fora, based on the sharing by the two countries of the same visions, pursuant to the directives of their leaders, to work together for the benefit of regional and international security and stability.
He said that in accordance with the high instructions of His Majesty King Mohammed VI, Morocco’s coordination is permanent with Jordan, “which is a partner and an ally with which the Kingdom shares the same visions on all bilateral, regional and international issues”.
Regarding the issue of the Moroccan Sahara, Bourita expressed Morocco’s appreciation of the constant position of the Hashemite Sovereign and Jordan regarding the territorial integrity of the Kingdom, highlighting that the decision of HM King Abdullah II to open a consulate general in Laayoune is a strong sign of this support, which His Majesty the King, the government and the Moroccan people highly appreciate.
