South Africa: Morocco Takes part in Francophonie Festival

Morocco is taking part in the 2018 edition of the annual Francophonie festival, which opened Saturday in the South African capital Pretoria, with the participation of several countries.

A Moroccan stand has been set up on this occasion, offering visitors the opportunity to discover the flavors and traditions of the Kingdom in a friendly atmosphere.

Several ambassadors of brotherly and friendly countries commended the Moroccan participation, the third since the launch of this event, underlining that Morocco, by its civilization and wealth, brings an invaluable richness to all facets of life in the continent.

The two-week festival will be marked by the screening of the Moroccan film "Nouhe ne sait pas nager" (Nouhe cannot swim) by Rachid El Ouali.

The festival is bringing together 25 French-speaking countries.
