SUBJECT: MOROCCO AT THE BMENA FORUM FOR THE FUTURE

REF: STATE 18950

Sensitive but Unclassified. Please Protect Accordingly.

In a November 21 meeting, poloff urged the GOM to send a
delegation headed by the highest possible official to attend
the BMENA Forum for the Future at the Dead Sea, drawing on
points contained reftel. Bilateral Affairs officer Karim
Halim expected but could not officially confirm that the
Moroccan delegation would be led by Taieb Fassi Fihri,
Minister-Delegate for Foreign Affairs. Halim noted that
Fihri has been deeply engaged in the BMENA process since the
GOM hosted the inaugural Forum for the Future in 2004.
Youssef Amrani, the MFA's Director General for Bilateral
Affairs, will attend, he added. Embassy assesses that Fassi
Fihri, who is very close to King Mohammed VI and is closely
associated with his reform plans, would be an excellent
interlocutor at the Forum.
