Jordan inaugurates its new consulate general in Laayoune

The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan on Thursday opened a consulate general in Laayoune, the 11th diplomatic representation inaugurated in the capital of the Moroccan Sahara for just over a year. The opening ceremony of this consulate was chaired by the Minister of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation and Moroccans living abroad, Nasser Bourita, and the Deputy Prime Minister, Jordanian Minister of Foreign Affairs and expatriates, Ayman Al-Safadi.

Jordan thus becomes the 11th country to have inaugurated a consulate in Laâyoune, after the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Ivory Coast, the Comoros Islands, Gabon, Sao-Tomé-Et-Principe, the Central African Republic, Burundi, Eswatini and Zambia.

On November 19, King Abdellah II of Jordan expressed, during a telephone call with King Mohammed VI, his country’s intention to open a consulate general in the Moroccan city of Laayoune.
