MOROCCO TO REJOIN AU AFTER 32 YEARS

 

Morocco has officially declared its intentions to rejoin the African Union after leaving over three decades ago.

Moroccan King Mohammed VI addressing the AU summit in Rwanda said it was time for Morocco to retake its place within its institutional family.

Morocco disassociated from the African Union after the organization approved the independence of Western Sahara in 1984.

BBC reports that in March, Morocco threatened to pull its soldiers out of UN global peacekeeping missions due to the dispute.

“Moroccan authorities seem to have concluded their absence hasn’t helped them diplomatically over Western Sahara and many other issues,” said BBC’s Africa Reporter James Copnall.

Morocco is the only African country not a member of the AU.
