President Barack Obama hosted Morocco’s King Mohammed VI at the White House on Friday for talks on furthering democracy in the Middle East and countering violent extremism.
Arriving at the White House, the king was greeted by a military honor guard that lined the driveway to the West Wing. In the Oval Office, Obama and King Mohammed made no public remarks before photographers were ushered out.
Ahead of the meeting, the White House said Obama planned to discuss U.S. support for democratic and economic reforms in Morocco and efforts to promote reform in the Middle East and Africa. Cooperation on countering violent extremism was also on the agenda, the White House said. Fighting terrorism in North Africa is a major U.S. national security priority.
“The U.S. has made clear that Morocco’s autonomy plan is serious, realistic and credible and that it represents a potential approach that could satisfy the aspirations of the people in the Western Sahara to run their own affairs in peace and dignity,” White House spokesman Jay Carney said.

After Trayvon Martin was shot last February in Florida by George Zimmerman, some people said that young Black men wearing hoodies risk being shot by people who think they may be criminals for no reason.
The person who killed Trayvon said he was acting in self defence. He was acquitted last week (July 13th) by a jury who declared him not guilty.
Some people think this is a racially prejudiced case and should be revised, others say that there was no evidence to condamn George Zimmerman.
A petition has been signed by hundred thousands to ask the Justice Department to investigate.
