President Macky Sall has appointed Mr. Babou Sène, Consul General of the Republic of Senegal in Dakhla, an appointment announced made during the Council of Ministers held Wednesday in Dakar under the chairmanship of the Senegalese Head of State.
Mr. Youssoupha Diop, new Consul General of the Republic of Senegal in Casablanca, was also appointed by the Senegalese President at this Council to replace Mr. Massamba Sarr, according to a news release from the Senegalese Presidency made public at the end of this council.
Last April, the Republic of Senegal established a Consulate General in Dakhla. Nasser Bourita, Minister of Foreign Affairs, and Assata Tall Sall, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Senegalese Abroad, presided over the opening event.
“Under the leadership of the two Heads of State, His Majesty King Mohammed VI and the President of the Republic of Senegal, Mr. President Macky Sall, this consulate general will serve to magnify the excellence of our relations,” Ms. Tall Sall said during a joint press briefing with Mr. Bourita at the end of the inauguration of this diplomatic branch in Dakhla.
The inauguration of the Senegalese consulate general in Moroccan Sahara not only shows the desire to strengthen bilateral ties further, but also “the aspiration that the two states have since nourished,” according to the Senegalese director of diplomacy. “I long for Africa.”
