Morocco is backing the candidacy of Equatorial Guinea for the United Nations Security Council, thanks to the excellent relations enjoyed by the ambassador Crisantos Obama Ondo with Moroccan authorities, within the framework of the desire by the two heads of State, H. E. Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, from Equatorial Guinea, and His Majesty, Mohammed VI, King of Morocco.
Through a diplomatic note issued by the Ministry for Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation in the Kingdom of Morocco to the Equatorial Guinea Embassy in Rabat, the Moroccan Government expressed recognition of the Government of Equatorial Guinea and unconditional support for its candidacy for the non-permanent position on the UN Security Council for the 2018-19 period, whose elections will take place in New York in June 2017.
This unconditional support marks the traditional understanding which exists between the two countries within international forums, and the excellent relations of friendship and cooperation.
Diplomatic sources indicate that the Moroccan ambassador to Equatorial Guinea, Ghoulam Maychane, for his part, passed on his Government’s decision to that of Equatorial Guinea on 12th May, before the Minister for Foreign Affairs and Cooperation, Agapito Mba Mokuy.
