In a weekly press briefing, held Thursday in Rabat, Government’s Spokesperson Mustapha El Khalfi refused to address reports on the United Arab Emirates’ ambassador to Morocco.

Refusing to answer journalists’ questions, El Khalfi said that he has no «comment on Emirati diplomat and reports related to this topic».

On Monday, several news platforms reported, quoting well-informed sources, that the United Arab Emirates’ ambassador to Morocco Ali Salem Al Kaabi has been recalled by his country’s authorities.

Arabic-language newspaper Akhbar Alyaoum wrote that the Emirati ambassador, appointed in February 2018, left the Kingdom last week, responding to a «sovereign decision taken by his country».

Contacted by Yabiladi on Tuesday, the UAE Foreign Affairs Ministry refused to comment on the information, preferring to let its embassy in Rabat respond to questions related to the matter. The latter couldn’t be reached for comment.  

Contacted by Yabiladi, diplomatic sources in Rabat couldn’t confirm the information relayed by several Middle Eastern newspapers.
