Malawi joins the club of countries having consulates in Moroccan Sahara

Malawi has opened on Thursday a consulate general in the Moroccan Saharan city of Laayoune, joining thus the club of African, Arab, and Caribbean countries which have already installed diplomatic representations in Laayoune and Dakhla since end of 2019.

This inauguration translates Malawi’s strong and steadfast backing to Morocco’s sovereignty over its Sahara and to its territorial integrity.

The inauguration ceremony was chaired by Malawi’s foreign minister Eisenhower Nduwa Mkaka and his Moroccan peer Nasser Bourita.

Mr. Nduwa Mkaka had announced Tuesday from Rabat that his country will also open an embassy in Morocco.

Malawi’s consulate in Laâyoune will be an addition to those of the United Arab Emirates, Jordan, Bahrain, Côte d’Ivoire, the Comoros Islands, Gabon, Sao Tomé and Principe, the Central African Republic, Burundi, Eswatini and Zambia.
