SUBJECT: MOROCCAN CANDIDATE FOR REELECTION TO INTERNATIONAL
TELECOMMUNICATION UNION COUNCIL

1. (SBU) On February 2, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of
Morocco sent a diplomatic note to the Embassy seeking support
of the United States for Morocco's candidacy for reelection
to the Council of International Telecommunication Union
(French original scanned and e-mailed to NEA/MAG).

2. (SBU) The Embassy's informal translation of the
diplomatic note follows:

(begin text)

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation presents its
compliments to the Embassy of the United States of America in
Rabat and has the honor to inform the Embassy that the
Government of Morocco has decided to submit its candidacy for
reelection to the Council of International Telecommunication
Union (ITU) for the 2010-2014 term, at elections which will
be held during the next Plenipotentiary Conference, scheduled
for October 4-22, 2010, In Guadalajara (Mexico).

Morocco, which represented the African continent within the
ITU Council for several terms, has contributed actively to
the development of policies and broad guidelines of the
Union's strategy in the field of Telecommunications.

Morocco is firmly committed, through audacious and innovative
measures, to make information and communication technologies
a tool for socio-economic development, to be able to
contribute to the fight against poverty, illiteracy and
disparities between regions.

Thus, Morocco has implemented a series of thoughtful measures
through liberalization of the industry of Information and
Telecommunication Technologies, the privatization of the
industry of Information and Telecommunication Technologies,
the privatization of public institutions operating in the
sector and the creation of independent structures of
regulations.

In this regard, the Kingdom of Morocco is fully engaged in
the process of consolidation of a global cooperation in the
fields of training, safety and technology development, and
works for the exchange of information and the transfer of
know-how.

In view of excellent relations of friendship and cooperation
existing between our two countries, the Government of Morocco
would highly appreciate the valuable support by the
Government of the United States of America to the Moroccan
candidacy.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation of the
Kingdom of Morocco avails itself of this opportunity to renew
to the Embassy of the United States of America in Rabat the
assurances of its highest consideration.

(End text of diplomatic note)
