Former French President Nicolas Sarkozy portrayed the King of Morocco, Mohammed VI and the former Algerian head of state, Abdelaziz Bouteflika. What did the French leader say?
Former French President, from 2007 to 2012, Nicolas Sarkozy, in his book “Le temps des tempêtes”, published on July 24, spoke of his relations with King Mohammed VI of Morocco and the former Algerian head of state, Abdelaziz Bouteflika.
Returning to his meetings with the former Algerian President, Nicolas Sarkozy reveals: “Abdelaziz Bouteflika refused to discuss face to face, but rather side by side (…). I always had to turn my face towards him to see him ”, and to deplore:“ which made me have pain in my neck when I left the residence where he received me ”.
The former French President went further, highlighting the rivalry which made Bouteflika “blame” him for the rapprochement between France and Morocco. “But I defended myself very strongly by reminding that at least when I am in Rabat, the king does not blame me and does not ask me why Morocco fell under French protection”, continues France24.
Speaking of King Mohammed VI, Sarkozy portrays a personality of “great intelligence,” “a kind person.” Braiding laurels to the King of Morocco, the former French head of state says the sovereign “mixes several characteristics: Power and strength that he inherited from his father, Hassan II, and the intelligence and humanity of his generation ”.
Nicolas Sarkozy, who appeals to the Moroccan sovereign, we do not know for what reason, is convinced that Morocco is very lucky to have a “king of this importance”. An open secret. For indeed, Mohammed VI has no equal in the world, in terms of a leader’s proximity to his people, especially those of the diaspora with whom the king communicates at every opportunity.
Autographs, selfies, Mohammed VI refuses nothing to his compatriots based abroad. The king spread his whole class during the appearance of the Covid-19, making the firm decision to repatriate all his “children” who so desire. Mohammed VI took the necessary steps to protect the kingdom, and even Africa, from this disease.
Despite the indiscipline noted among some citizens, Mohammed VI continues his fight against the Coronavirus. That he intends to gain, despite the weight of responsibility, age too, but above all a health that would not be good.
