Dr. Mamadou Tangara, Minister Of Foreign Affairs & Gambians Abroad.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, International Cooperation and Gambians Abroad wishes to inform the general public that on 30th March 2023, and 1st April, 2023 the Moroccan Internal Security Office in Dakhla rescued two illegal migrant boats from The Gambia.

Information available to us through our Mission in Rabat indicates that the first boat, which left  The Gambia on Thursday 23rd March 2023, was carrying one hundred and sixty-one people (161), out of which one hundred and forty-eight (148) were Gambians. 

The second boat left on Friday 24th March 2023 carrying one hundred migrants, out of which forty-eight were Gambians, bringing the total number of Gambians to two hundred and thirty-three (233).

Within the framework of the close cooperation and partnership between the two brotherly countries, the Moroccan Government in collaboration with The Gambia Embassy in Rabat, is facilitating the necessary arrangements for the safe, and smooth repatriation of Gambian migrants back to The Gambia.

In view of the foregoing, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs reassures the general public that all efforts will be employed to ensure the protection of Gambians and their interests abroad at all times.
