Pretoria will have Youssef El Amrani as a Moroccan ambassador soon, le360 news website reported. Morocco’s foreign ministry received a letter from its South African counterpart confirming the accreditation of El Amrani who served previously as secretary general to the foreign ministry, head of the Union for the Mediterranean and in charge of mission at the Royal cabinet.
