Casablanca — Senegalese press was positive in its coverage of King Mohamed VI’s visit to Dakar and in its analysis of the visit’s diplomatic, economic and social implications.
The Senegalese daily “Le Soleil” covered the Moroccan-Senegalise GIE (Economic Impulse Group), which was presided by Mohamed VI and Senegalese President Macky Sall on Wednesday at the Abdou Diouf International Conference Center near Dakar.
In its coverage, Le Soleil discussed how the Morocco-Senegal GIE meeting aimed at reinforcing economic cooperation and partnerships between the countries’ private sectors.
Le Soleil also emphasized the significance of King Mohamed’s November 6 speech made in Dakar in honor of the 41st anniversary of the Green March, stating that it was “a historic first that will remain forever etched in Senegalese and African diplomatic history.”
In the November 6 speech, Mohamed VI said that Senegal had “demonstrated, through its actions and words, that it treats the issue of the Moroccan Sahara as if it were its own.”
Leral.net, a popular Senegalese news site, discussed the strength of Moroccan-Senegalese relations, as proven by Senegal’s courageous support of Morocco “after it left the African Union in 1984.”
Meanwhile, the African Press Agency (APA-News) focused on the commonality that is Islam between the two nations, calling it a “main element that has facilitated diplomatic, economic and social relations between Senegal and the Kingdom of Morocco even before the independence of Senegal in 1960” and furthermore calling Mohamed VI’s visit “an excellent diplomatic move.”
