Peruvian Congress Designates November 30 as a Day to Celebrate Morocco

The Peruvian Congress has officially institutionalized the “Day of the Kingdom of Morocco,” to be celebrated annually on November 30, the date of the anniversary of His  Majesty King Mohammed VI’s visit to the Peruvian Congress in 2004. 

The Moroccan Embassy in Peru underlined, in a statement, that this decision was initiated by the Peru-Morocco Parliamentary Friendship Group in the Peruvian Congress during its second institutional meeting held on April 25 at the headquarters of the Peruvian legislative institution.

The initiative was unanimously adopted by the members of the friendship group that held a meeting under the chairmanship of its President Ernesto Bustamante Donayre, in the presence of the former president of the Congress and current president of the Foreign Affairs Committee, Alva Maria Prieto, and other members of the friendship group representing Peru’s different political affiliations. 

The Moroccan Embassy noted that the choice of November 30 to celebrate “The Day of the Kingdom of Morocco” in the Peruvian Congress aims to commemorate His Majesty the King’s visit to the Congress of Peru, recalling that the Sovereign also met with the former President of the Peruvian Congress, Antero Flores-Aráoz.

In a similar context, the Moroccan Embassy added that the official institutionalization of “The Day of the Kingdom of Morocco” in the Peruvian Congress reflects the excellent legislative ties uniting the two countries and the parliamentary group’s commitment to strengthening these ties and promoting expertise exchange, cooperation and consultation on matters of common interest.

On this occasion, the Peru-Morocco Parliamentary Friendship Group reiterated the position of the Peruvian Congress in support of the autonomy plan and the sovereignty of Morocco over its Sahara, calling on the Peruvian government to formally recognize the Moroccan Autonomy Plan as the only solution to the regional dispute over the Sahara.

It should be recalled that His Majesty King Mohammed VI paid an official visit to Peru in 2004, as part of a series of visits to Latin America namely Mexico, Brazil, Chile, and Argentina.
