Diplomat: Bahrain's Decision to Open Consulate in Laayoune, Reflection of its Stance in Supporting M

Bahrain's decision to open a Consulate General in the city of Laayoune is a reflection of the country's stance in supporting the territorial integrity and national unity of Morocco, said Friday Ambassador of Bahrain to Rabat, Khalid bin Salman bin Jabr Al-Musallam.

"The decision of Bahrain to open a consulate general in Laayoune, following the phone call received yesterday by HM Mohammed VI from his brother HM King Hamad bin Issa Al Khalifa, is a reflection of Bahrain's stance in supporting the territorial integrity and national unity of Morocco, and a translation of the model Bahraini-Moroccan relations," Ambassador Al-Musallam told MAP.

According to the diplomat, the inauguration of the consulate general of Bahrain in the city of Laayoune "is not a symbolic position, but rather a concrete decision that consecrates continuous support of Bahrain to Morocco. It also reflects strong political relations based on brotherhood and solidarity, in defense of the unity of both countries."

Ambassador Khalid Al-Musallam voiced Bahrain's keenness that the step will further enhance the Bahraini-Moroccan relations and advance them to wider horizons.

He also expressed his country's support for the measures taken by Morocco to ensure the flow of goods, merchandise and people between Morocco and Mauritania, in the area of El Guergarat, in the Moroccan Sahara, denouncing any practices that would threaten traffic at this vital trade crossing between Morocco and its African depth.
