AL-Salam Alaikom Wa Rahmatu Allah Wa Barakatu,

I am also pleased to associate myself to the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques in welcoming the brother His Majesty King Mohammed VI, the King of the Kingdom of Morocco, between his brothers the GCC leaders.

This blessed meeting comes during a critical political, economical and security conditions experienced by the Arabic and Islamic nations. That requires a joint coordination with continued consultations and cooperation in unprecedented summit among us as GCC countries leaders and the Kingdom of Morocco. It will give the existing strategic partnership between us extra dimensions, and it will move it to new horizons to achieve the hopes and aspirations of our people.

Your Majesties and Highnesses,

The GCC countries are proud of the historic deep-rooted relations with the Kingdom of Morocco, which we had constantly sought to promote it to a level that reflects the depth of it until we were capable with God’s help and your desire to reach out to the desired level of strategic partnership.

We are continuing in our quest to strengthen this strategic partnership, because our absolute faith in its inevitability and necessity under circumstances requires unity not division.
