UAE Opens Consulate General In Morocco
LAAYOUNE || The United Arab Emirates (UAE) on Wednesday opened its consulate general in Laâyoune, the 9th diplomatic representation inaugurated in the capital of the Moroccan Sahara in less than a year.
The United Arab Emirates have thus followed in the footsteps of the Union of the Comoros, Gabon, the Central African Republic, Sao Tome and Principe, Burundi, Côte d'Ivoire, Eswatini and Zambia.
As well as the consular representations inaugurated in Dakhla in 2020, in particular, the Gambia, Equatorial Guinea and Guinea-Bissau, the Republic of Djibouti, Liberia and Burkina Faso.
This long series of inaugurations of diplomatic representations in Laâyoune and Dakhla continues, as a strong gesture reaffirming the recognition of the Moroccan character of the Sahara by many countries.
With the opening of their consulate in Laâyoune, the Emirates become the third Arab country to have consular representation in the Moroccan Sahara, after Djibouti and the Union of the Comoros.
As a reminder, a press release from the Royal Cabinet announced, on Tuesday, October 27, 2020, the opening of the said consulate. Ben Zayed Al-Nahyane, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi, Deputy Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces of the State of the United Arab Emirates, had also spoken with His Majesty King Mohammed VI, and informed him of the decision.
