  • Saudi Pro Government Outlet Attempts to Defuse Tension with Morocco

Ambassador Mustapha Mansouri confirmed on Friday the recall to Morocco's Le360, the pro-establishment news website said.

Broadcast by Al Arabiya, the documentary on Western Sahara questions the territorial integrity of Morocco for an area of the desert contested for over 40 years.

The ambassador added that Morocco and Saudi Arabia are bound by strong and longstanding ties that are now undergoing a "transient crisis", Le360 reported.

Since March 2015, Saudi Arabia and some of its Arab allies have been carrying out deadly airstrikes in Yemen against the Houthi Ansarullah movement in an attempt to restore power to fugitive former president Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh.

Up to now, neither the Moroccan nor the Saudi foreign ministries have commented on the diplomatic tensions.

A government official told Reuters on Thursday that the ambassador had been in Morocco for about a week, without specifying the reason.

The Saudi-led Arab Coalition to Restore Legitimacy in Yemen has viewed with concern, media reports alleging the transfer of United States military weapons to the Iranian-backed Houthi militia and AQAP in Yemen.

Thunder have reportedly waived guard Alex Abrines on Saturday
After trading Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot to the Bulls last week, the Thunder are now down to 12 guaranteed roster players. Abrines has appeared in only 2 games since December 23rd, citing personal reasons.

One of the officials said Morocco was no longer involved in military interventions or ministerial meetings in the coalition.

Meanwhile, the Coalition has viewed with concern media reports alleging the transfer of USA military weapons to the Iranian backed Houthi militias and AQAP in Yemen.

Bourita told Al Jazeera that Morocco's participation in Yemen had changed due to "developments on the ground" in the country, "especially in regards to the humanitarian situation".

Asked why Rabat didn't host Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman on a recent tour of other Arab countries, Bourita said: "Official visits are prepared in advance, according to protocol". The war has killed thousands and displaced over 3 million people.

The good relations between Morocco and Qatar have irked some circles within the Saudi regime to the extent that Saudi Arabia and the UAE that turns in its orbit voted against Morocco in the 2026 World Cup.

The tour came amid global concern about the Yemen war and condemnation of the killing of Saudi writer Jamal Khashoggi in the Saudi Embassy in Istanbul.
