Morocco has attached particular importance to strengthening ties with Latin and Central American countries winning precious support for its national Sahara cause and bolstering trade and investments. The recent visit to Saint-Dominique by Foreign Minister Nasser Bourita stands as a reflection of a win-win partnership that Morocco has been building across the Atlantic. During the visit, the Moroccan minister signed two agreements with his Dominican counterpart Miguel Vargas Maldonado, opening promising prospects for bilateral trade and investments. In the same vein, Salvador was the latest in a series of Latin American countries that pulled the rug from under the feet of the Algerian-backed Polisario separatist front. The foreign ministry of the Latin American country announced earlier this month that it is reviewing its recognition of the Polisario separatists as part of an upgrade of its foreign policy.
