Bourita said “the King of Morocco gave instructions to the delegation to act constructively despite his absence.”

“Algeria’s explanations regarding the map crisis are not credible,” he added.

The head of Moroccan diplomacy insisted that “the Arab League is the only channel of communication with Algeria.”

On Sunday, the Arab League denied having “media partners” to cover the proceedings of the 31st Arab Summit in Algeria, contradicting a map of the Arab world published on the site of Algerian public channel AL24 News. The League accepted, prompting the reservation of the Moroccan delegation. .

In a brief press release issued on Sunday, the Algerian channel for its part “apologizes for using a map of the Arab world approved by the Arab League”, stressing that it was a “technicality only”. error.’
