Morocco and the UAE discuss ways of strengthening security

Morocco and the UAE have met to discuss ways of strengthening their homeland security, and learn from each other’s nations.

Morocco’s National Security and Territorial Surveillance Director General Abdellatif Hammouchi received the Commander-in-Chief of the Abu Dhabi Police, Major General Faris Khalaf Al Mazrouei, who was currently visiting the country at the head of a large security delegation.

The meeting allowed both security officials to discuss and review the levels of security cooperation and areas of police coordination on common issues, whilst strengthening the relations and deep ties between Morocco and the United Arab Emirates.

The two sides also discussed mechanisms to improve operational cooperation in security matters, strengthen technical assistance and exchange experiences and best practices adopted to improve police training services. Morocco and the UAE work closely together and aim to strengthen security and stability and combine joint efforts to fight the dangers of terrorism and transnational organised crime.

The Emirati side was informed of the Moroccan experience in the field of maintaining public security and followed explanations about the structural organisation and powers entrusted to the various units and security formations responsible for ensuring the safety of citizens and protect their property.

According to a statement from the Directorate General of National Security (DGSN), this meeting reflects the depth of cooperative relations between security institutions and law enforcement agencies in the Kingdom of Morocco and the United Arab Emirates, as well as the convergence of views on the centrality of security cooperation as an effective mechanism to address security risks and terrorist threats.
