Haiti Opens Consulate in Dakhla
Haiti to open a new consulate general in Dakhla city southern Morocco
The Republic of Haiti has decided to open a consulate general in Dakhla, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation and Moroccans Abroad declared on Tuesday.
In a letter sent to his counterpart Nasser Bourita, the Minister of Foreign Affairs in Haiti expressed his country’s desire to open a consulate general in Dakhla, southern Morocco.
This decision, then, makes Haiti the first non-Arab and non-African country to open a consulate in Moroccan Sahara. The move conveys Haiti’s support for Morocco’s territorial integrity and its recent intervention to restore peace in Guerguerat.
The consulate general of the Caribbean country comes after 16 other countries had opened consulates in either Laayoune or Dakhla. And with the future opening of Jordan’s and Haiti’s consulates, the two southern provinces will be host to 18 consulates including those of UAE, Cote d’Ivoire, Gabon, to name a few.
