The long absence of King Mohammed VI at Arab summits

King Mohammed VI continues to sulk the Arab peaks; the last one dates back to 2005 at the Algiers summit. This Sunday, at the meeting of heads of state of the Arab League in Dahran in Saudi Arabia, Morocco is represented by Prince Moulay Rachid.
A representation that is nevertheless of a higher level than the last edition, organized in March 2017 in Jordan, where the Moroccan delegation was presided “only” by the former Minister of Foreign Affairs, Salaheddine Mezouar.
This absence in Dahran contradicts some media who had bet on a participation of the sovereign at the summit following the Paris dinner having reunited the king and Prince Mohammed Ben Salmane.
The 29th summit in the Wahhabi kingdom comes almost 48 hours after the air strikes against Syria led by the United States, France and Britain.
