Moroccan Foreign Minister Nasser Bourita and his Malawian counterpart, Eisenhower Nduwa Mkaka, inaugurated on Thursday Malawi’s consulate general in Laayoune, the largest city in Western Sahara.

Mkaka, who held talks with Bourita in Rabat Tuesday, also announced his country’s decision to open an embassy in the Moroccan capital.

Mkaka reaffirmed his country’s strong and steadfast support for Morocco’s sovereignty over its Sahara and its territorial integrity.

More than twenty countries have so far opened diplomatic representations in the Moroccan Sahara.
