Sahara: Bahrain will open a consulate general in the Moroccan city of Laayoune

King Hamad Ben Issa Al Khalifa of Bahrain has informed King Mohammed VI of his country’s decision  to open a consulate general in the Moroccan city of Laayoune.


This came during a phone call that King Mohammed VI received on Thursday  from His brother, Hamad Ben Issa Al Khalifa.


This call is part of the sincere fraternal relations and mutual esteem between the two Sovereigns and the two Royal Families, and reflects the approach of permanent consultation and coordination between the two leaders as well as the relations of fruitful cooperation and continued solidarity between the two brotherly countries, the Royal Office said in a statement.

During the call, King Hamad welcomed the Moroccan Monarch’s moves in the region of  Guerguarat, in the Moroccan Sahara,  which led to a decisive and effective intervention to preserve peace and stability in this part of Moroccan territory, and to ensure a normal and secure flow of people and goods between  Morocco and Mauritania.

King Mohammed VI expressed to his brother Hamad Ben Issa Al Khalifa his “heartfelt thanks for this important decision, which reflects the continued solidarity between the two brotherly countries.”


King Mohammed VI also expressed his consideration for Bahrain’s  constant positions and support of the territorial integrity and national unity of  Morocco.
