Senegal, latest African country to open a consulate in Dakhla

Senegal has joined the club of African countries that have taken their recognition of Morocco’s sovereignty over the Sahara to a tangible consular level.

Senegal, Morocco’s longstanding friend and ally, will open its consulate on Monday, Moroccan media said citing official sources.

Senegal’s move in support of Morocco’s territorial integrity has a heavy weight on the continent and sends a strong message that will reverberate across the continent in favor of Morocco’s legitimate right in the Sahara and adds another nail to Algerian stand in support of separatism.


Morocco has been scoring major points as it defends its territorial integrity notably after the US proclamation of its recognition of the Kingdom’s sovereignty over the southern provinces and its plan to open a consulate in Dakhla.


Over 20 countries from Africa and the Arab world have opened consulates in Dakhla and Laayoune as an increasing number of countries plan to follow suit.
