Antananarivo (Madagascar), Nov 26 (IANS/MAP) Morocco’s King Mohammed VI said that separating Morocco and Africa would be “an error” in an interview to Malagasy press on Saturday.
During an official visit to Madagascar, Mohammed said: “Morocco and Africa are one. To separate them would be an uprooting, an error.”
“The women, men and children I meet give me the strength to continue. They make me proud to be African and a ‘son of the country’, as deemed by the President of the Republic, he added.
Talking about his visit to Antisirabe in Madagascar, the King said: “My visit was very moving. Contrary to exile experiences in general, my family has maintained good memories and a strong relationship with Antisirabe.”
He added that he would like to set up a vocational training centre in the fields of tourism and construction and build a mother-child hospital which will also provide training for medical staff.
“The rumours that these projects would only benefit the Muslim community are totally false. These projects are intended for the entire population.”
Promoting bilateral relations between Morocco and Madagascar, he said: “Madagascar has undeniable assets to succeed. Morocco is ready to support its ministerial departments, public companies and private sector.
