Mr. Mezouar received by the President of Senegal and the President of Niger
Dakar 03.18.2017

The Minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation, Mr. Salaheddine Mezouar, was received on March 18th and 20th, 2017, in Dakar and Niamey, by the Senegalese President, Mr. Macky Sall and the President of the Republic of Niger, Mr. Mahamadou Issoufou, to whom he delivered a message from His Majesty King Mohammed VI, regarding the request of Morocco to become a member of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS).


These talks, which take place under Royal Instructions, fall within the framework of the excellent  relations that bring together the Kingdom and countries of the region.

During these talks, Mr. Mezouar highlighted the importance of the new approach, which is the integration of Morocco into the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), a month after the return of Morocco to the African Union (AU).

Mr. Mezouar pointed out that Senegal and Niger have always supported Morocco at all levels for its return to the African institutional family.

Mr. Mezouar also noted that Morocco's request is not an isolated fact, but is linked first of all to the common and intense history between the Kingdom and this economic space, as well as to the cultural, human and economic development between the two parties.

In the same vein, Mr. Mezouar stated that Morocco's approach is consistent with logic and continuity, recalling that the Kingdom is linked with all the countries of ECOWAS through agreements, partnerships, investments, as well as cultural and other exchanges.

In his concluding remarks, Mr. Mezouar stressed that ECOWAS, which is the most integrated region at the African level, will undoubtedly be an economic region that will play a leading role for the African continent.

The Heads of State of the Republic of Senegal and of the Republic of Niger, Mr. Macky Sall and Mr. Mahamadou Issoufou, reiterated their full support to His Majesty the King, warmly welcoming the action and active involvement of the Sovereign for the development and stability of Africa in general, and of the region in particular.
