Lebanon Reiterates Support to Morocco’s Sovereignty, Territorial Integrity (Joint Statement)

In a joint statement following his talks with the Minister of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation and Moroccan Expatriates, Nasser Bourita, on the sidelines of the 9th Global Forum of the UN Alliance of Civilizations, the top Lebanese diplomat also reaffirmed the rejection by his country of all separatist entities threatening the unity and security of States.


He also commended the fraternal relations uniting the two countries and Morocco’s continued support to the main Lebanese issues, stressing that the Kingdom, under the leadership of HM King Mohammed VI, always stands by Lebanon and backs its just causes.


Bou Habib recalled, in this regard, the generous solidarity initiatives ordered by the Sovereign, following the explosion in the port of Beirut on August 4, 2020, as well as the royal donation to face the economic challenges and the Covid-19 repercussions.


Referring to the issue of displaced Syrians in Lebanon, Bou Habib stressed the importance of an international community’s roadmap for a dignified and safe return of the displaced, in the face of the inability of Lebanon to continue to support their presence on its soil, with the economic, financial and social crisis it is experiencing.


In this sense, he recalled the UN pact for migration adopted in December 2018 in Marrakech, based on the principle of sharing the burdens.
