Dakhla, (MoFA) - Burkina Faso welcomes the efforts made by Morocco to resolve the Libyan conflict, said Friday in Dakhla Minister of Foreign Affairs, Cooperation and Burkinabe Abroad, Mr. Alpha Barry.

"Any settlement of the Libyan crisis contributes to strengthening security in the central Sahel, especially since it is a very important issue for us as a Sahelian country", Barry pointed out at a joint press briefing with the Moroccan minister of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation and Moroccans Expatriates, Mr. Nasser Bourita, held following the inauguration of the Consulate General of Burkina Faso in Dakhla.  

He also expressed hope that these efforts will lead to a settlement of the Libyan crisis, noting that Morocco and Burkina Faso have a convergence of views at the political and diplomatic levels.  

The opening of a Consulate General of Burkina Faso consolidates an already "very strong" economic relationship, as evidenced by the Moroccan presence in Burkina Faso in several areas such as telecommunications, industry, banking and insurance, he added.  

"We have many prospects following the opening of this consular representation in Dakhla, which will further strengthen economic relations and consolidate the human relations that already exist between Morocco and Burkina Faso", he said.  

Mr. Barry also welcomed the signing of an agreement between the government of his country and the Kingdom of Morocco, on the abolition of visas for nationals of the two countries holding ordinary passports.  

"Morocco is a privileged destination for Burkinabe wishing to do business, receive medical care given the Kingdom's advanced technology in this area, and this agreement will help facilitate the flow of traffic between the two countries," he added.
