Dakhla is a gateway of the Kingdom of Morocco to its African depth, including the West African region, in accordance with the will of HM King Mohammed VI, said Bourita at a joint press briefing with his Sierra Leonean counterpart, David J. Francis, at the end of the 3rd session of the joint Commission of Cooperation.
"Dakhla will be a primary base of economic relations of Morocco with West Africa, as desired by His Majesty King Mohammed VI, through the economic dynamics and infrastructure of scale, including the Atlantic port which is under construction," he said.
This city has seen the successive opening of several consulates of friendly and brotherly countries, as well as it has become a destination for holding important diplomatic meetings, he recalled, citing in this regard the holding of joint Commissions with the Union of Comoros and Sierra Leone.
In this context, the Minister stressed that Dakhla remains a real diplomatic and economic hub in the southern provinces and will serve as a platform for developing economic and trade relations with Sierra Leone, noting that the holding of the 3rd session of the joint Commission between the two countries in this city confirms the position and firm support of Sierra Leone to the issue of the territorial integrity of the Kingdom.
