Nasser Borita, the Moroccan Minister for Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation and Abroad, said on Thursday that any person or organization bringing charges against Morocco should present evidence in court, or condemn it as defamatory, through computer software leaked to the phones of several national and foreign public figures.
“Justice is precise to verify allegations against material and conclusive evidence. Some have chosen this path. They will present evidence to them, or not,” the minister underlined in an interview with the Pan-African newspaper Jean-Afri.
Borita, who denounced Morocco as believing in justice both domestically and internationally, called it a “smoke”, and a newly formed “blue (…) without evidence”, added that “the facts must be brought to light, far from controversy and slander”.
According to the minister, “these are not prohibited stories or amnesties, they are based solely on speculation”, and some of the topics integrated within this alliance “serve the well-known agenda of their primary hostility towards Morocco and its victory under the leadership of” His Almighty King Mohammed VI .
If there are “manifestations,” it is really the exit to the broad daylight of this hostility that “cannot hide behind its learned and civilized behavior”. “It simply came to our notice then. This is a massive sabotage, “he said.
Asked if Morocco already maintains its position in 2019, the Kingdom did not buy Pegasus software accordingly, the minister said: “We maintain it and we accept all responsibility for it”.
The Minister pointed out that Morocco is challenging the perpetrators of these allegations, including Amnesty International and the Federation of Forbidden Stories, as well as their supporters and intermediaries, and should provide any conclusive and substantiated evidence in support of their accounts, adding that “some media support and voluntary organizations in this card are in line with the reality of Morocco.” Does not manage, it succeeds, strengthens itself and strengthens its sovereignty at all levels ”.
The minister insists they “think they can keep him in check.” To their amazement, this is not possible and will never be. The national community will face these insidious attacks as always, ”he said.
With all due respect to these same parties, Morocco has succeeded in establishing itself as a “reliable” ally with its allies, thanks to its globally recognized performance of its security services, especially in the international struggle against terrorism, in preventing conspiracies instigated against the national stability of the Kingdom, especially in the United States, Europe, Asia and Africa. It is also possible to stop terrorist attacks in many countries.
According to Borita, the timing of the campaign was “certainly not trivial”.
“This year again is no exception. This very symbolic time for Morocco and the people of Morocco has always been deliberately chosen by hostile circles, who seek to tarnish the image of Morocco and its institutions by publishing pamphlet books or articles and interviews, sometimes with harmful statements, ”he notes.
Borita denounced it as “uninterrupted concentration” especially in Morocco; A “substantial mobilized media strike force” including the public service of a particular country; The climate of the countryside; The thin hidden desire that affects confidence in the state of Morocco both at home and abroad; Most coded date selection for Morocco and Morocco.
“Is this a campaign? Yes! Is it a denial? Of course! Was it planned? It can’t be any different! By whom? Time will tell, ”he said.
“Morocco will continue its march to consolidate its economic development, its social development and its regional and international influence, firmly and firmly,” Morocco’s “true” friends noted, noting that it was in their best interest as well. Others will be disappointed, and they will be disappointed. They underestimate Morocco’s determination and do not think they know it. “
Morocco today is an “influential and unavoidable” regional player whose voice is heard within major international and continental organizations such as the UN and the AU, Morocco today is the “provider of peace and security in its region” with reliable protection of many countries in the international fight against the environment and terrorism. Partner “, which helped prevent terrorist attacks, especially in the United States, Europe, Asia and many countries in Africa.
“Who is interested in excluding Morocco? Who is interested in preventing us from playing this constructive role internationally? These are real questions that need to be asked of me,” the minister stressed.
On July 19, Brida recalled that through the voice of the State Department, the Biden administration, under the leadership of His Excellency the King, reaffirmed the strong and long-standing relationship between Morocco and the United States in matters of counter-terrorism cooperation. Together for the security of the two countries, Morocco has become a trusted partner, provider of security and stability in its regional environment, and its circle of partners.
A leading player in the Kingdom in the Global Counter-Terrorism Forum and the Global Anti-Dash Alliance, the Minister stressed that Morocco “helped save lives, drop plans for attacks and bring to justice many terrorists and criminals”.
“We do it with the satisfaction of a duty fulfilled and with the gratitude of friends and associates, so without the satisfaction of Amnesty International and Forbidden Stories,” he noted.
