  • Description

    King Hassan the Second celebrated the 12th Anniversary of his accession to the Moroccan throne on Saturday (3 March) at a reception in the grounds of his Rabat palace.

    The king received the congratulations of members of the Rabat diplomatic corps during the reception.

    The reception came immediately after King Hassan had announced in a nationwide broadcast that he had decided to extend Morocco's territorial waters from 12 to 70 miles (10 to 112 kilometres).

    He also announced the 'Moroccanisation' of sectors of the economy controlled by foreigners, and the decision to take over farmland still held by foreign settlers. Compensation will be paid for the land, which will be distributed among landless peasantry.
