Large Moroccan-Gabonese commission to be held soon (MFA)
Pacôme Moubelet Boubeya, Gabonese Minister of Foreign Affairs, talked Friday in Rabat on the huge Moroccan-Gabonese mixed commission that would be held soon.
Gabon aims to hold a series of events in Laayoune to bolster its presence in this region of Morocco’s territory, according to Gabonese Foreign Minister Pacôme Moubelet Boubeya, who made the announcement Friday in Rabat.
Heureux d'être au #Maroc, pays cher à mon cœur, pour une visite de travail et d'amitié.
Et encore plus heureux d'y retrouver mon frère, Sa Majesté le Roi Mohammed VI.
Je n'oublierai jamais tout ce qu'il a bien voulu faire pour moi, en particulier dans mes moments difficiles. pic.twitter.com/dqqFsDX46F

The Gabonese Republic confirms its solidarity for the Moroccanness of the Sahara through the organization of these events, said the Gabonese top diplomat during a press conference following talks with Moroccan Minister of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation, and Moroccans Abroad, Nasser Bourita.
He also expressed gratitude to the Kingdom for assisting Gabon in the organization of a cultural day in Laâyoune, which he described as a huge success.
Mr. Boubeya further stated that his country remains committed to the Kingdom’s territorial integrity.
Late September, the Gabonese embassy in Rabat chose the city of Laayoune to commemorate the 61st anniversary of the independence of this friendly African country, which opened a consulate general in the Moroccan Sahara capital in January 2020.
For this occasion, dubbed “Gabon in Laayoune,” a rich program has been planned, including artistic performances reflecting Gabonese cultural heritage, an exhibition of Gabonese items, donations of school supplies, and visits to numerous Laayoune enterprises.
