Central African Republic Opens its Consulate General in Laayoune
PERSISMA, Laayoune, Morocco – The Central African Republic on Thursday morning inaugurated a consulate general in the southern city of Laayoune.
The opening ceremony was chaired by minister of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation and Moroccans abroad, Nasser Bourita, and his Central African counterpart Sylvie Baïpo-Temon.
In a statement to the press on the sidelines of this event, ambassador of the Central African Republic in Rabat and doyen of the African diplomatic corps in Morocco, Ismaila Nimaga, stressed that the opening of a diplomatic representation of his country in Laayoune attests to the excellent level of the “intense bilateral relations that have reached their summit”.
“Today is a rebirth in the relations uniting the Central African Republic and the Kingdom of Morocco, a brotherly and dynamic country,” he said, emphasizing the firm commitment of the CAR to support the Moroccanness of the Sahara.
“When it comes to the territorial integrity of the Kingdom, the Central African Republic has always given its unquestionable and irreversible support to Morocco on this issue,” Nimaga stressed, expressing his wish to see more African States open their diplomatic representations in the southern provinces of the Kingdom.
This is the fifth diplomatic representation inaugurated in Laayoune, after the honorary consulate of Côte d’Ivoire, opened last June, the consulate general of the Union of the Comoros (December), as well as Gabon’s consulate general, inaugurated last week.
Earlier in the morning, Bourita had chaired with his Santomean counterpart the opening ceremony of the consulate general of Sao Tome and Principe in Laayoune.
