Sahel countries are called upon to seize the multiple opportunities offered by the Royal Atlantic Initiative, stressed on Friday several African Ambassadors participating in the 7th “Morocco Today Forum” (MTF) in Dakhla.


Speaking to the press, the diplomats highlighted His Majesty the King’s Vision to promote South-South cooperation and boost Africa’s development.
In this respect, Cameroon’s Ambassador to Morocco, Mouhamadou Youssifou, said the Atlantic Initiative aims not only to integrate the 23 States bordering the Atlantic Ocean, but also to give Sahel States access to the sea, recalling that his country is a member of this initiative. He also stressed that this project is in line with the vision of His Majesty King Mohammed VI to develop and promote South-South cooperation.

“We cannot advance unless we work together and defend our interests in the Atlantic area,” he maintained.

The Cameroonian diplomat also noted his country’s support for the Initiative to make the Atlantic port of Dakhla available to Sahel States with no access to the sea.

For his part, Ambassador of the Republic of Burkina Faso to Morocco, Mamadou Coulibaly, underlined that this Initiative provides African countries with an opportunity to upgrade their infrastructures and promote socio-economic development, calling on these States to seize this opportunity.

This Initiative has a high chance of success, especially given that it was launched by His Majesty the King, after numerous travels by the Sovereign in Africa.

For his part, Ambassador of the Republic of Chad to Morocco, Hassan Adoum Bakhit Haggar, described the Royal Atlantic Initiative as a « large-scale project, » emphasizing the Kingdom’s policy of proximity to the African continent.
