Action of Bayt Mal Al-Quds to improve living conditions in Holy City highlighted at Agency’s 25th anniversary celebration – The North Africa Post
At an event in Skhirate celebrating the 25th anniversary, King Mohammed VI highlighted the sustained action of Bayt Mal Al-Quds Asharif Agency to improve the living conditions for the Holy City’s inhabitants.
Minister of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation, and Moroccan Expats Nasser Bourrita highlighted Friday in Skhirat the continued action on the ground by the Bayt Mal Al-Quds Asharif Agency under the leadership HM King Mohammed VI with the goal of improving the living conditions for the inhabitants of the Holy City.
Addressing the event, Moroccan Foreign Minister Nasser Bourita underscored the agency’s efforts to improve the living conditions of the inhabitants of the Holy City, pointing out that, in implementation of the King’s high directives, this institution is constantly engaged in fulfilling its noble mission to act on the ground to preserve the cultural identity of the Holy City, improve the living conditions of its inhabitants and support their resistance and presence in Al-Quds.
The Foreign Minister, chairman of the Agency’s guardianship committee, noted that such guidance has enabled the agency to gain good reputation and great respect among brotherly countries in the Arab and Islamic world in general, and among Palestinians and the inhabitants of Al-Quds in particular.
He stressed that the celebration of the 25th anniversary of the Agency is part of King Mohammed VI’s constant concern to preserve the Arab and Islamic identity of the Holy City and his firm commitment to help its inhabitants to resist through daily and continuous social and humanitarian field work.
He added that the Kingdom has remained faithful to its commitment to the just Palestinian cause and to the protection of Al-Quds in particular, deploying relentless efforts to strengthen and develop the Agency’s action. He also recalled how Morocco contributed to the agency’s budget through donations from individuals and institutions (30%) and state donations (nearly 70%).
The Agency was founded in 1998 and has implemented more 200 projects to benefit all sections of the community. These projects include buildings reconstruction and rehabilitation, property acquisition, education, health, and agriculture, and support for local economies.
The media, culture, publishing, youth, sports and children’s sectors have also benefited from the agency’s support, in addition to support, training and social assistance for orphans, widows and the disabled.
Bourita affirmed further that Morocco’s position, under the leadership of King Mohammed VI, chairman of the Al-Quds Committee, remains firm and rejects any prejudice to the legal and historical status quo of the city of Al-Quds and the Al-Aqsa Mosque, stressing the need to refrain from anything that could fuel tensions in the Middle East region.
Morocco, convinced peace in the Middle East is a strategic choice, will continue to invest its capabilities and take advantage its distinguished relations and relationships with all parties to any international effort for peace and negotiations. This, Bourita insists, is the only way to end the conflict.
