The United Kingdom has appointed a new ambassador to Morocco in succession to Thomas Reilly. The announcement was published, Monday, on the United Kingdom's public sector information website. «Simon Martin CMG has been appointed Her Majesty’s Ambassador to the Kingdom of Morocco in succession to Mr Thomas Reilly», read the statement.

The new ambassador, who served from 2015 to 2019 as the UK's ambassador to Manama, Bahrain, is expected to take office in September 2020.

The current British ambassador to Morocco Thomas Reilly has taken office in June 2017. In addition to his position in the Kingdom, the diplomat served as the UK’s non-resident ambassador to the Islamic Republic of Mauritania from June 2017 until May 2018, when the first ever resident ambassador to Mauritania was appointed.

The mission of the current British ambassador to the Kingdom of Morocco has been marked by his critical comments on social media against the country’s national carrier Royal Air Maroc (RAM). During the weekend, the diplomat took to Twitter to complain about the delay of two of the company’s flights.
