King Mohammed VI of Morocco Visits Rwanda,then will head to Tanzania and Ethiopia

King Mohammed VI, is in the Republic of Rwanda, as part of a royal tour that will also lead the Sovereign to Tanzania and Ethiopia.

This is the first tour of the Moroccan monarch to East Africa where Morocco’s presence and projection are weak in comparison to West Africa. The tour comes within the strategy designed by King Mohammed VI in recent years, which aims to diversify its partnerships, strengthen its ties with the most important players on the African continent, and also gain their support to its position with regards to the Western Sahara dispute.

The visit comes three months after Morocco announced its intention to return to the African Union.

“Our friends have long been asking us to return among them so that Morocco may take its natural place within its institutional family. That time has now come,” the King said in a letter to the 27th summit of the African Union held in Kigali, Rwanda, in July.
