Morocco hosts regional meeting on migration
Rabat, Oct. 31 (AltAfrika) -A regional meeting on migration is underway in the Moroccan city of Skhirat where representatives are expected to come to a compromise on a united African agenda on the issue.
Speaking during the opening of the meeting, Moroccan Minister of Foreign Affairs Nasser Bourita said the informal session aims to open a deep dialogue between the politician, the experts and the civil society.
Since March, Morocco’s king Mohammed VI has been in charge of coordinating the migration issue within the African Union.
In his speech addressed to the 29th AU Summit last July, the Moroccan king stressed the need for African states to work together to develop an African Agenda on migration.
The meeting is expected to be the first step in developing the promised African Agenda on migration. (Xinhua)
