    In his document, Dr. Benarafa discussed the cultural depth of the Kingdom of Morocco, highlighting that its geographical location overlooking three continents, its affiliation to Africa and the East as well as its proximity to Europe contributed to the representation of the Kingdom as an open civilized model.
