King Mohammed VI of Morocco had successful heart surgery

King Mohammed VI of Morocco underwent another heart operation at the Rabat Palace Clinic, which was a complete success, according to information from his medical team.

The King underwent the surgery on June 14 at the clinic of the Royal Palace in Rabat after he presented a recurrence of a heart rhythm disorder, atrial flutter, on a healthy heart.

In a statement relayed by the Moroccan news agency (MAP), the Moroccan sovereign’s medical team explained that he had undergone “complementary ablation by radio frequency” and the procedure was successful.

In February 2018, Mohammed VI had been operated for a “heart rhythm disorder”, this time at the Ambroise Paré clinic in Paris.


The royal office said in a statement Tuesday evening that King Mohammed VI had telephone conversations with leaders of Gulf countries and Jordan.


The King had telephone exchanges with King Salman of Saudi Arabia and his son, Crown Prince Mohamed Bin Salman.

The monarch also held phone calls with King Abdullah II of Jordan, Emir of Qatar Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, and Bahraini King Hamad Ben Khalifa.

The leaders conveyed the King their wishes for a speedy recovery and good health after his recent heart surgery.

The statement reassured citizens that the medical intervention was a complete success.
