The United Nations High Representative for the Alliance of Civilizations, Miguel Angel Moratinos, today, Friday, in Rabat, announced the selection of Fez to host the World Summit of the Alliance of Civilizations scheduled from 29 November to 2 December 2020.

   In a statement to the press after his meeting with the Minister of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation and Moroccans residing abroad, Mr. Nasser Bourita, Mr. Moratinos announced "The city of Fez was chosen because of its ancestral character and its spiritual symbolism,"

“The need to save the planet is often mentioned, but we must also learn to live together, to respect each other and to understand the existence of different religions, cultures and civilizations. Morocco embodies this, "he continued.

The next summit, coinciding with the 15th anniversary of the Alliance, will take place for the first time in Africa. It will serve as a platform to evaluate the action of UNAOC since its creation and to prepare a global action program benefiting all humanity.

   The High Representative of the Alliance of Civilizations expressed his gratitude for the support of "the Majesty King Mohammed VI and the Kingdom of Morocco" for this global event, stressing that, thanks to the efforts of the United Nations and Morocco, "We will guarantee great success for the World Summit of Alliance of Civilizations.""
