Rabat, June 16 (IANS/MAP) Morocco’s Minister of Culture and Communication Mohamed Laaraj will not take part in the meeting of Communication Ministers on Yemen crisis in Saudi Arabia.

According to an official statement on Friday, the decision was taken due to “busy agenda”.

The Moroccan announcement to skip the meeting, scheduled on to be held on June 23 in the Saudi city of Jeddah, came only two days after the North African kingdom lost its bid to host the 2026 World Cup to the joint bid of the US, Canada and Mexico.

Morocco is part of the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen and it sent troops to contribute to the Saudi-led operations that fight Houthi rebels and aim at “restoring the legitimate government in Yemen”.
