In this line, he highlighted the role of parliament in supporting the dynamics of Moroccan diplomacy, especially in terms of bilateral relations within the framework of parliamentary friendship groups, noting that the diversity and pluralism within the Moroccan parliament are in favour of the defense of the vital interests of the Kingdom.

In addition, he noted that the defense of the interests of Moroccan expatriates in the framework of a complementary and integrated vision between Parliament and the various sectors, is among the main priorities of Moroccan diplomacy.

For their part, the parliamentary deputies welcomed the achievements of Moroccan diplomacy under the leadership of HM King Mohammed VI.

In their speeches, parliamentarians have emphasized the role of parliament in defending the Kingdom's territorial integrity and promoting major development projects conducted by the Kingdom, stressing the need for coordination between the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Parliament, to ensure greater efficiency of parliamentary diplomacy.
