Morocco, Guinea Sign Protocol on Management and Operation of Mohammed VI Religious Complex in Conakry

Morocco and Guinea signed, Thursday in Conakry, a protocol on the management and operation of the Mohammed VI Religious Complex in Conakry, whose construction works were kicked off by King Mohammed VI, Commander of the Faithful, in February 2017.

The Protocol was signed, on the Moroccan side, by Secretary General of the Mohammed VI Foundation of African Ulema, Mohamed Rifki, while the Guinean side was represented by the Minister Secretary General of Religious Affairs, El Hadj Karamo Diawara.

The two parties underscored the urgent necessity to enhance religious, spiritual, and cultural cooperation between the two nations, with a focus on serving Islam and Muslims, as well as contributing to the development and stability of Guinean society.

The agreement, symbolizing the enduring cultural, spiritual, and historical ties between the two nations, will enable Guinea to benefit from Moroccan expertise and experience in the training of Imams, as well as in the planning and management of mosques.

The Mohammed VI Religious Complex in Conakry is designed to propagate the religious values of tolerance, solidarity, and dialogue, grounded in the shared religious principles between the two countries. It also aims to facilitate the exchange of experiences in Imam training and the organization of religious and cultural events.

Spanning over one hectare, the religious building comprises a prayer hall accommodating over 3,000 worshippers, a conference room, a library, a Koranic school, a shopping centre, green spaces, and administrative facilities.
