Rabat seeks stronger signs from Tunis before making peace
Morocco and Tunisia are slowly settling their differences, but the kingdom wants Tunis to take some concrete steps before it is willing to make amends.
The mandate of the Secretary General of the Arab Maghreb Union (AMU) expired at the end of August. In the midst of the diplomatic crisis between Morocco and Tunisia, Taïeb Baccouche sent a request to the five member states for an extension of his mandate.
Foreign affairs minister Nasser Bourita has tasked the Moroccan Agency for International Cooperation (AMCI) with bringing thousands of projects signed during royal visits to Africa back to life. The goal is to counter Algerian soft power's revival on the continent.
