Brazil Depicts Moroccan Sahara on Official Maps

The Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics (IBGE), a government institution tasked with publishing geographical, cartographical and statistical data, posted the complete map of the Kingdom of Morocco, including its Southern provinces, on its official website.

The state agency has made available to Brazilian citizens a digital world map as envisioned by the Brazilian government. This map is intended to familiarize people with all countries’ borders.

The government’s recognition of Morocco’s sovereignty over its Sahara is evident on its official maps, as this was also conveyed through a map that was displayed in the office of Brazilian President Lula da Silva during a meeting with United States Secretary Antony Blinken, in February.

Brazil’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mauro Vieira, is currently holding talks with Morocco’s FM Nasser Bourita.

Foreign ministers from Brazil and Morocco are scheduled to engage in a constructive dialogue on several topics, including trade, air and maritime connectivity, political dialogue and multilateral issues.

Diplomatic relations between the two countries were established in 1906, and have grown since 1963, with both countries opening embassies.

Morocco is Brazil’s third largest partner on the African continent, with exports mainly consisting of non-refined sugar and corn. Bilateral trade reached $2.65 billion in 2023.
