A high-level US delegation, led by Assistant Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs David Schenker, on Sunday visited the premises of the future Consulate General of the United States in Dakhla.

The American delegation, accompanied by the Minister of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation and Moroccans living abroad, Nasser Bourita and the United States Ambassador to Morocco David Fischer, toured the future premises of the US diplomatic representation.

The delegation was received by the Wali of the Dakhla-Oued Eddahab region, governor of the province of Oued Eddahab, Lamine Benomar and the presidents of the elected councils.

Schenker arrived in Dakhla on Saturday afternoon. The stop is part of his tour in the Sahara after that of Laayoune.

It is worth mention that the United States decided to open a consulate in Dakhla with an essentially economic vocation to encourage American investments and to contribute to economic and social development in the region.
