Morocco-AU/14th African Union Extraordinary Session of the Assembly on Silencing the Guns:Minister Delegate Jazouli : “Africa’s challenges require synergy of efforts and a concerted response”

The security and stability challenges facing Africa, and which manifest themselves in the multiplication of conflicts and crises, require a synergy of efforts and a concerted and united response from all, underlined, Sunday November 6, 2020, in Rabat, Minister Delegate to the Minister of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation and Moroccan Expatriates, Mr. Mohcine Jazouli.

To confirm and consolidate “the Africa we want”, the Continent needs security, stability and peace, said Mr. Jazouli, who led the Moroccan delegation to the 14th African Union Extraordinary Session of the Assembly on Silencing the Guns, held via videoconference.

To achieve this, three axes are essential, said the Minister delegate: to jointly take the necessary measures to defeat terrorism and religious extremism; prevent the illicit circulation of small arms and light weapons; and adopt a Union policy on peace support operations, based on clarity and the preservation of the fundamental principles of Peacekeeping Operations.

In this regard, Mr. Jazouli said that the AU draft doctrine on Peace Support Operations “should be inspired by these principles”, deeming it necessary to introduce the principle of “subsidiarity” which gives the UN Security Council primary responsibility for maintaining international peace and security.
