Background: King Hassan II of morocco addressed his people on the Middle East war on Tuesday (October 29), and said that the Arab victory had to b e exploited to the full.
He said victories not fully exploited could easily turn into defeat.
The King was speaking before members of the moroccan Government, and military officials in a television and radio broadcast to mark the end of Ramadan.
The Arabs, he said have lihhe??? themselves, they have reacted,they made their voice and their views heard and they have become sons worthy of their fathers.
But King Hassan warned that the Arab world should speak with a single voice and avoid washing its dirty linen in public.
Last week King Hassan called for a meeting of Arab defence and foreign ministers to co-ordinate strategy in the drive for a Middle East settlement.
Morocco committed about 1,800 troops in the Syrian fighting. They were reported in action from the first day of the war, and were said to have fought well.
