Netanyahu goes to W. African summit, Moroccan King misses it to avoid him

Although Morocco has asked to join the Economic Community of West African States, King Mohammed VI cancelled his trip to Monrovia for the 51st summit of the Economic Community of West African States opening Sunday. He discovered that Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu was due to attend the conference that was to examine Rabat’s application. Netanyahu’s participation in the summit will be his second trip to Africa in less than a year after he traveled last July to four East African countries, including Uganda, Kenya, Rwanda and Ethiopia. Also attending are Secretary General of the United Nations António Guterres, as well as high-level delegations from the European Union and the African Union.
