During this meeting, Toufiq reviewed the major reforms undertaken under the leadership of HM King Mohammed VI, Commander of the Faithful, adding that the Moroccan Islam is an Islam of tolerance and moderation.

These characteristics distinguish Morocco as a haven of stability and a hub to spread tolerant Islam in the African continent, the minister said.

Toufik also recalled the Marrakesh Statement on the Rights of Religious Minorities in the Islamic World which mirrors the religious leadership of HM King Mohammed VI.

For its part, the US delegation, which also includes CBS journalist Andrea McCarren, welcomed the leadership of the Sovereign and lauded the important role played by the Kingdom in the fight against religious extremism.

The US delegation also stressed that the ambition to set up a Moroccan National Press Club will foster the Kingdom's leadership in the continent and beyond.
