Morocco’s CCME Chief, Abdellah Boussouf, stated that the world as we know it today is undergoing many conflicts, as well as extremism and hatred but people will overcome this situation with the will to live together in peace and security.
On the light of Casablanca’s International Book Fair, Boussouf praised the role of Moroccans living abroad, pointing out their contribution to the economic and demographic development since the Second World War outbreak; this contribution, however, led Western communities to reconsider their position in relation to Muslims in general.
On the other hand, the “Mediterranean Three Cultures Foundation” Director General, Jose Manuel Severá, stressed that in a world of a globalized culture, pluralism is no more a matter of choice, for the real challenge is “to manage pluralism within a democratic framework allowing everyone to coexist”.
Jose Manuel Severá also pointed that Andalusia is historically proven to be a great model for co-existence for this region in particular stands as a product of diverse cultures.
Morocco’s constitution stipulates pluralism and diversity from the same point of view of Andalusia, therefore, both sides shall play a major role in the democratic management of such diversity in order to contribute to rational solutions, Severá added.
