King Mohammed VI left on Friday afternoon the Casablanca Mohammed V International Airport heading to the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia.
King Mohammed VI is expected to attend the African Union (AU) summit, scheduled to take place on January 30 and 31, in Ethiopia’s capital, Addis Ababa.
Morocco’s appointed Head of Government, Abdelilah Benkirane, said earlier this month that the King will travel to Addis Ababa, for the AU summit to stand up for Morocco’s return to the Pan-African organization.
King Mohammed VI is accompanied by Prince Moulay Ismail and an official delegation consisted of his advisor, Fouad Ali El Himma, Foreign Affairs and Cooperation Minister Salaheddine Mezouar, Delegate to the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Nasser Bourita, and a number of dignitaries.
Earlier this week, Morocco officially notified the countries constituting the Commission of the AU of this development.
During the 30th regular session of the AU Executive council, held Thursday in Addis Ababa, four countries reaffirmed their support for the return of Morocco to the AU.
Morocco World News reported on Wednesday that Morocco had officially notified the countries constituting the Commission of the AU of this development.
