This inauguration, as the Minister underlined, is "the concretization of the latest phone call between His Majesty King Mohammed VI and His Brother, His Majesty Hamad Ben Issa Al Khalifa, during which the Sovereign of Bahrain welcomed the peaceful intervention ordered by His Majesty the King in the region of El Guergarat, in the Moroccan Sahara”.

MFA Al Zayani noted that His Majesty Hamad Ben Issa Al Khalifa had welcomed the recognition by the United States of the full sovereignty of Morocco over all of its Sahara and the upcoming opening of an American Consulate General in the city of Dakhla

Recalling the constant position of Bahrain and Morocco on the Palestinian question, the Bahraini minister highlighted “the support of the two countries for the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people to an independent state with Al-Quds Al-sharif as its capital, in the framework of international law and the Arab initiative of two-state solution”.
