Morocco has decided the immediate recall of its ambassador in Abuja for consultation, said Tuesday a statement from the Moroccan Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation.
Here is the content of the communiqué:
“Contrary to the allegations made by Nigerian authorities to the ambassador of HM the King in Abuja and local media, the Kingdom of Morocco confirms, in the clearest and strongest terms, that there has never been a phone conversation between HM King Mohammed VI and the President of this country.
HM the King has actually declined the request of the Nigerian government because it is part of the internal electioneering and this country’s fundamentally hostile positions with regard to the territorial integrity of the Kingdom.
The Kingdom of Morocco expresses its astonishment and denunciation to these unethical practices that are contrary to the spirit of responsibility that must prevail in relations between States.
Accordingly, the Kingdom of Morocco has decided the immediate recall of the ambassador of HM the King in Abuja for consultation”
The King’s Office also categorically denied the false allegations made by Nigerian authorities about an alleged phone conversation between the Sovereign and Nigerian President.
”Morocco is surprised at the incredible twist given by Nigeria to an alleged phone conversation that never took place between HM King Mohammed VI and Nigerian President,” said Tuesday a statement from The King’s Office.
