AaAaAa Morocco proved its strong and responsible commitment at the international level concerning the fight against terrorism, as shown by its adherence to all international conventions related to this matter, its contribution to the international community's efforts in fighting this phenomenon and its active role as part of the global initiative to combat nuclear terrorism, Akharbach said in a meeting with visiting British security minister, Lord West of Spithead.
