South Africa and Morocco will resume diplomatic ties more than a decade after Morocco withdrew its ambassador from Pretoria, South African President Jacob Zuma said in a newspaper interview published Sunday. Morocco recalled its ambassador from South Africa in 2004 after then-South African president Thabo Mbeki recognized a breakaway region in the Western Sahara which Morocco claims as part of its territory.Zuma met Morocco's King Mohammad last week on the sidelines of an African Union-European Union summit.The decision to re-establish ties with Morocco is likely to go down badly with some members of South Africa's ruling African National Congress, of which Zuma is leader.
