All projects scheduled or being carried out by Bayt Mal Al-Qods Agency in Al Quds are financed by Morocco, said on Morocco’s minister of foreign affairs and cooperation, Salaheddine Mezouar, who deplored the absence of support to these projects.
Morocco has proposed to all fund donors to present projects for Bayt Mal Al Quds Agency and Al Quds committee, but, “unfortunately, there has been no positive interaction so far” , he said at a press briefing following a meeting with Palestinian peer, M. Riyad Al-Maliki.
Morocco and Palestine consider that Bayt Mal Al Qods’s projects do not seek political or diplomatic gains but aim to support Al Quds and its inhabitants, he added, noting that Morocco has been painstakingly calling Arab and Islamic countries to support the projects in the holy city.
However, he went on, there are some attempts to establish parallel institutions to Al Quds Committee in a bid to achieve political gains. Morocco refuses this approach and will remain faithful to the initiatives launched by HM King Mohammed VI, who chairs Al Quds Committee, in coordination with Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas to support Al Quds and its inhabitants.
Following their meeting, the two foreign ministers signed an agreement to set up a joint commission between the two governments to develop coordination and cooperation in economic, financial, trade and health fields as well in scientific research and social services.
