Consulat général du Gabon à Laâyoune : Un soutien ferme, franc et sincère à la marocanité du Sahara
The opening of a Gabonese consulate general in Laayoune shows the firm support of the people and the government of this African country for the Moroccan identity of the Sahara, said Gabonese Foreign Minister Alain-Claude Bilie-By-Nze.

"We already have an embassy in Morocco and the opening of this consulate general in Laayoune is part of the continuity of this diplomatic representation," said Bilie-By-Nze during a joint press briefing with Minister of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation and Moroccans Abroad Nasser Bourita. Welcoming the "singular, special and close" relations uniting Gabon and Morocco, the Gabonese minister invited the Gabonese community to settle in the southern provinces of the Kingdom to benefit from training in the fields of fisheries, tourism, renewable energy and building.

"Gabon will continue to work with Morocco on other subjects which are part of a dynamic of strengthening our cooperation and the fraternal ties between our two countries," he noted. The Republic of Gabon inaugurated Friday a consulate general in Laayoune, the third diplomatic representation that opened in this city after the honorary consulate of the Côte d'Ivoire which opened last June, and the consulate general of the Union of the Comoros which started offering its services in December.

The city of Dakhla also hosts the consulates general of The Gambia and Guinea.
