“It is time to return home,” the Sovereign pointed out in a speech at the 28th African Union Summit held in Addis Ababa.

“It is so good to be back home, after having been away for too long! It is a good day when you can show your affection for your beloved home! Africa is my continent, and my home,” HM the King added.

“I am home at last and happily reunited with you. I have missed you all,” the Sovereign noted.

“That is why, My Dear Brothers, Heads of State, I wanted to make this trip and to address you, without waiting for the protocol and legal procedure for the Kingdom to take its place again within the Organization to be finalized,” the Monarch underlined.

“It is time to return home; at a time when the Kingdom is among the most developed African nations and when a majority of Member States looks forward to our return, we have decided to join our family again”, HM the King pointed out, adding that the AU is “a family we had not really left.”

“It was necessary to withdraw from the OAU; it has enabled Morocco’s action to be refocused in Africa to show how indispensable Africa is to Morocco and how indispensable Morocco is to Africa,” the Sovereign noted.

“In fact, despite having been absent from the AU institutions for so many years, our links, which have never been severed, have remained strong and African sister nations have always been able to rely on us,” HM the King said.
