Chad’s Minister of Communication and official government spokesperson, Aziz Mohamed Saleh, affirmed the country’s commitment to seize the opportunity presented by King Mohammed VI’s initiative. The initiative aims to enhance the access of Sahel countries to the Atlantic Ocean, facilitating increased trade exchanges with the rest of the world, particularly with Morocco.
During a friendly luncheon organized by the Moroccan Ambassador to Chad, Abdelatif El Roudja, the Chadian Minister highlighted the historic and significant relationship between Chad and Morocco. He emphasized that Chad, through this initiative by King Mohammed, should position itself at the forefront of leveraging the open route to the Atlantic Ocean via Morocco.
In his televised address, the Minister stated, “The government will seize this opportunity of an open route to the Atlantic Ocean through Morocco to enhance its trade exchanges with the rest of the world, especially with Morocco. This becomes crucial in a context marked by disruptions and the closure of sea routes to Chad.”
On the Moroccan side, Ambassador El Roudja underscored that the occasion provided an opportunity to shed light on the developmental dynamics in the Kingdom of Morocco. These dynamics are manifested through structured initiatives and projects in the field of bilateral and multilateral cooperation.
King Mohammed VI had proposed the international initiative on the 48th anniversary of the Green March, aiming to facilitate access for Sahel countries to the Atlantic Ocean.
The luncheon was attended by the Minister of Communication and official government spokesperson, the Director of the High Authority for Audiovisual Communication, publishing directors, editors-in-chief, and journalists.
