King Mohammed VI appointed today, in Tetouan, Omar Hilale as the Ambassador in Morocco’s Permanent Mission at the United Nations in New York.
A press release issued by the royal cabinet specifies that Omar Hilal was appointed following a proposition of the Prime Minister and at the initiative of the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation.
Omar Hilale served previously as Ambassador at Morocco’s Permanent Mission to the United Nations Office in Geneva. He will be replacing Mohamed Loulichki, who has occupied this position since 2008.
Hilale’s appointment intervenes in a critical context characterized by the United Nations Security Council’s annual meeting on the Sahara dispute.
