Moroccan Embassy in Iraq reopens its Morocco
Morocco is preparing to reopen the Embassy in Iraq. Morocco's initiative is part of the reconstruction of the country devastated by among other things the fight against Daesh.
For security reasons, the Moroccan Embassy was closed 13 years, that decision was taken after the kidnapping of two Moroccan citizens in 2005. The coming weeks will be the headquarters of the Moroccan Embassy in Baghdad be reopened. The reopening of Embassy in Iraq will take place on the occasion of the visit to Baghdad by the Moroccan Minister of Foreign Affairs and international cooperation, Nasser Bourita, reports Lefr360.
This Moroccan initiative corresponds to the desire of both countries to their fraternal and to breathe new life into bilateral relations. Despite the situation Morocco had its Embassy in Iraq retained after the fall of the old regime. The safety conditions eventually led Rabat its diplomatic representatives to the Jordanian capital Amman.
The decision by Morocco comes at the time of launch of the reconstruction of Iraq. During the last International Conference chaired by the world bank, was more than EUR 20 billion in aid committed to Iraq for reconstruction. The Iraqi Minister of Planning estimated the needs of his country at 88.2 billion. Premier Haidar Al Abadi has recently talked about 100 billion dollars at the World Economic Forum in Davos. Suffice to say that the country's reconstruction is colossal.
