Moroccan Prime Minister Saadeddine EL Othmani has stressed that some “isolated crimes or terrorist incidents” are not capable of tampering with the security and stability of the country.
Speaking Thursday, the PM hailed security agencies in arresting 20 terrorist networks this year alone, a figure that shows “the efforts exerted (by the authorities) at the level of security, and the number of plots that have been thwarted.”
EL Othmani stressed that citizens, civil society, the media, intellectuals and the government had a role in preserving Morocco’s security.
All communities in the country have expressed their condemnation to terrorism, an evidence on the people’s unity, he said.
The PM urged all state institutions to consolidate their communication with citizens to inform them about the government’s achievements and brief them on the efforts exerted by the authorities in several sectors.
He characterized government work in 2018 as “greatly dynamic” despite many challenges.
El Othmani said many reform programs had been launched, promising further measures in 2019 to meet the people’s social needs.
