Morocco asks to re-join African Union after 4 decades
September 24, 2016
ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia – The African Union says Morocco has officially submitted a request to join the continental body again after more than four decades.
An AU statement Friday says a Moroccan foreign affairs adviser handed a copy of the request to African Union Commission Chairwoman Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma on Thursday.
The statement says Dlamini- Zuma said member states will be informed and Morocco’s king will be notified of the outcome.
Morocco quit the AU in 1975 after disagreements over Western Sahara, which the AU recognizes as an independent state.
Morocco annexed the mineral-rich Western Sahara, a former Spanish colony, in 1975 and considers the region to be its “southern provinces.”
