Infomédiaire Morocco – The minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Nasser Bourita, has pointed out, since The city of Valletta (Malta), the need to print a higher speed to the Cooperation between the member countries of the 5+5 Dialogue with the creation of’ a G10 Mediterranean “.
Bourita, who took part in the 15th meeting of Ministers of foreign Affairs of the countries of the 5+5 Dialogue of the western Mediterranean, considered an opportune time to move to a new stage, even print to the Cooperation between the members of the 5+5 a higher speed, depth and dimension scopes, and this by the creation of a partnership Group, exceeding the classical paradigm of the 5+5: The ” G10 Mediterranean “.
The G10, the true ambition of Morocco for a Mediterranean freed from its constraints, which sometimes hinder to attach the will to the action, is meant to be a receptacle for the dynamics of cooperation in variable geometry (N+N),-t-he explained.
For the minister, this new format, which is flexible and adaptable, should enable us to go beyond the logic of shore in front of the other, or block in front of the other, and to foster the emergence of synergies, simplicity, open and operational, allowing effectively to the challenges at all.
Bourita rejoiced at this occasion of the outbreak of new innovative initiatives, such as the initiative carried by the French President, Emmanuel Macron, for a Summit of two shores, or the proposal of the Portuguese Dialogue Euro-Maghreb electricity.
On the topics of migration and youth, Bourita called to develop a version 5+5 of the Global Pact on Migration, in particular to identify the instruments of action which, at the time, are in the Covenant and at the same time are adapted to the Mediterranean area.
Noting the obvious link between the youth and migration, the minister recalled that in his message to the Marrakech Conference on the Global Compact, the King Mohammed VI underlined that at ” each step of the migration routes, at every degree of integration, each level of complementarity between development and migration, it is the voice of the youth that we hear, and it is their needs that we respond “.
In this framework, Bourita felt that the youth, which represents, today, more than 60% of the population of the member countries of the 5+5, is, both, an opportunity and a challenge : An opportunity because it represents a reservoir of potential. and a challenge, because the youth must change in the dignity of knowledge and work, finding meaning in the present and be preserved for extremism, in all their forms.
It is in this spirit that Morocco proposes to organize a ministerial conference on the Youth, dedicated to the training, education and employment, he said, being convinced that there is a momentum for agreement on a ” Mediterranean Agenda for Youth “, and to associate them effectively with the different actors and operators involved.
Bourita also stressed that the idea of a joint nomination Morocco-Spain-Portugal for the organization of the World cup in 2030 should be an important mobilising factor within the Mediterranean area.
The ministerial meeting of the dialogue “5+5″ in Malta, held under the theme ” working together : a future sustainable for the western Mediterranean “.
The 5+5 Dialogue is the oldest framework of meeting between the countries of the mediterranean basin. It brings together Italy, France, Spain, Portugal and Malta for the Northern shore, and the five countries of the arab Maghreb Union for the South bank, with the objective to engage in a process of regional cooperation in the western Mediterranean.
