Mr. Chalwe Lombe: “Opening of Consulate General of Zambia in Laâyoune gives Concrete Substance To Support for Moroccan Identity of Sahara”
Laâyoune,(MoFA) - The opening on Tuesday of a Consulate General of Zambia in Laâyoune gives concrete substance to the support of this southern African country for the territorial integrity of Morocco and its sovereignty over the Sahara, said Secretary General of the Zambian Ministry of Foreign Affairs Chalwe Lombe.

"Zambia has reaffirmed its constant position concerning Morocco's right to its territorial integrity and to its sovereignty over the Sahara region. The inauguration of this Consulate General today follows this logic", underlined Lombe during a joint press briefing with Minister of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation and Moroccan Expatriates, Mr. Nasser Bourita, at the end of the inauguration ceremony of this diplomatic representation in Laâyoune.

Mr. Lombe noted that this is "a sovereign act of support and solidarity" towards the Kingdom, "a true friend of Zambia", in the issue of the Moroccan Sahara, adding that the Consulate General of his country in Laayoune, as well as his Embassy inaugurated on Saturday in Rabat, will help to strengthen "our bilateral relations at the political, economic and human levels".

In this regard, he praised the "fruitful cooperation" at the bilateral and multilateral levels between the two States, highlighting the support for the training of Zambian students who benefit from scholarships in Morocco. The Zambian official also expressed his thanks to His Majesty King Mohammed VI, May God Assist Him, and to the Moroccan people for the important medical assistance provided by the Kingdom to his country in the midst of a health crisis linked to the new coronavirus (Covid-19).

He also recalled the state visit of His Majesty King Mohammed VI, May God Assist Him, to Zambia in February 2017, which was marked by the signing of nearly 19 agreements in various fields, including diplomatic consultations, economy, sciences, technology, education, mining, finance and tourism.
