A Swedish company in Morocco

Apparently, a Swedish store was going to open in Morocco. But the Moroccan government has scuttled the grand opening. They are mad because they claim that Sweden is recognizing a break-away country in the Sahara.

So the BBC Arabic talked live with an analyst from Rabat.

The analyst explained that the Swedish embassy in Morocco has not recognized the break-away country. But Swedish companies or NGOs have. The embassy says they can't do anything about that. But Morocco is mad anyways.

This would have been the first Ikea to open in Morocco.

I visited the Ikea in Jordan just a few weeks after its grand opening. You can read about it here.
