On June 23 of 2019 in Marseilles, the Ministers of Foreign Affairs of the 5+5 Dialogue States (France, Portugal, Spain, Italy, Malta, Mauritania, Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya) signed the “Commitments for a new ambition in the Mediterranean” in order to implement the projects the civil society suggested and provide a collective response to the common challenges in the Mediterranean.
STATEMENT: COMMITMENT ON A NEW AMBITION IN THE MEDITERRANEAN
We are convinced that what unites our two shores is greater than what divides them. We wish to propose a positive agenda for the Mediterranean and promote it as a sea of all opportunities. Faced with today’s multiple transitions, including in the political, climate, economic and digital fields, we are urgently driven to help inspire a generation united in response to transnational challenges. We are committed to the same values, including tolerance and gender equality. We wish to share our best practices in governance, community and good-neighbourly relations
