The proposal, put forward at a 5+5 Dialogue Foreign Ministers’ meeting in Marseille, France, was welcomed by participating countries, the Foreign Ministry Saturday said in a press release.

The meeting , co-chaired by France and Morocco, addressed several issues of concern to the Western Mediterranean region, namely means to keep peace and stability, the fight against terrorism, economic co-operation, regional integration, trade and investment.

It also focused on means to strengthen multilateral co-operation in sustainable development, environment, migration, education and employment, the same source said.
