Rabat – After spending time in Moscow, Prague, and Budapest, King Mohammed VI will complete the next leg of his time abroad in The Hague, according to an “informed source” cited by Medias24.
No official information from the government has been released regarding his travel, however.
On occasion of his second visit to Russia, the Moroccan monarch met with President Vladimir Putin on March 15th and proceeded to sign a dozen agreements regarding trade and intelligence sharing, among other issues.
Afterwards, the king flew to Prague, where he met with the President of the Czech Republic, Milos Zeman, at the Presidential Palace on Monday. Talks between the two leaders focused on furthering cooperation in the economic and cultural fields.
The Netherlands visit will close out a full month of international travel for the king. In early March, the king met with French President Francois Hollande and other officials in Paris, after which the European country affirmed Morocco’s autonomy plan for the Sahara.
“For France, the autonomy plan submitted by Morocco in 2007 represents a serious and credible basis for a negotiated solution” to the Sahara issue, French Foreign Ministry spokesperson Romain Nadal told reporters.
The autonomy plan would allow the country’s Southern Provinces to practice self-governance regarding regional issues under Moroccan sovereignty. In lieu of accepting the plan, the Polisario Front – the separatist group that fought a 16-year war with Morocco to gain independence for the region in question – called for referendum on total independence, as it has in the past.
