French President Emmanuel Macron arrived in Morocco on Thursday to inaugurate with His Majesty King Mohammed VI the Tangier-Casablanca high-speed line, presented as “the fastest in Africa” and a symbol of the “depth” of the partnership between Paris and Rabat. A large ceremony surrounded by maximum security measures, as for all royal events, was organized in the huge renovated station of Tangier, a major maritime hub between Africa and Europe, before the departure of the official convoy to Rabat, the administrative capital.
