The Permanent Representative of Morocco to the United Nations, Ambassador Omar Hilale, has been re-elected by acclamation as President of the Central African Republic Configuration of the United Nations Peacebuilding Commission (PBC), during the body's first formal meeting of the year.

The PBC, a subsidiary body of the Security Council and of the General Assembly, has the mandate to mobilize resources for the financing of the various peacebuilding plans of the country, to mobilize the international community to keep the Central African issue at the heart of its concerns and to develop recommendations and advice, particularly to the Security Council.

The re-election of Ambassador Hilale is an example of the confidence of the international community and the United Nations in the key role played by Morocco in the building, maintaining and sustainability of peace. Indeed, the Kingdom remains to this day the only Arab and African country to chair a Country Configuration.
