Queen Sofia to visit Children institutions in Morocco:
Tetuan, (Northern Morocco) Feb 25 - Queen Sofia of Spain arrived, Thursday, in the Northern town of Tetuan, where she is due to visit several children institutions.

Queen Sofia was greeted upon arrival by Princess Lalla Salma (spouse of HM King Mohammed VI of Morocco).

Her activity schedule includes visits to Child Protection League, the Used Water Technology transfer center, the Hanane Disabled Children Protection Center and the Cervantes Spanish Teaching center.

The Spanish Queen arrived in Morocco From Mauritania, where she visited along with Mrs Aicha Ould Taya, spouse of the Mauritanian president, several towns and social institutions, including those contributed to by Spain. Algeria was the first leg of the Spanish Queen tour to the region.

Earlier this year, Queen Sofia accompanied her husband, King Juan Carlos, on a three-day State visit he paid to Morocco on January 17 through 19.

On January 19, Princess Lalla Salma and Queen Sophia visited, in Tangiers, Northern Morocco, the social center “Assadaka” for children and
young people who are in a difficult situation.


The center was set up part of a partnership between Entraide Nationale (public establishment for the fight against poverty) and the Spanish NGO 'Paideia' that is active in the protection of youth and children in a difficult situation.

25 FEBRUARY 2005

The friendly relations between Spain and her southern neighbours are obviously going from strength to strength, with Queen Sofia paying her second visit to Morocco in under a month. King Mohammed's wife, Princess Lalla Salma, warmly embraced her European visitor when she arrived at Tetouan Airport on Thursday afternoon.

Later that day the red-haired princess, dressed in a spectacular silver kaftan with ornate detailing, hosted a lavish dinner in honour of her guest. And the fact she has taken charge of such a high-profile event is just further evidence of the Moroccan royal household's determination to modernise.

The 26-year-old, who married King Mohammed in 2002, is the first wife of a Moroccan monarch to be photographed or seen publicly. A qualified computer engineer, she has taken centre stage at numerous official functions, including last year's visit from the Belgian royals.

The North African country has not always enjoyed such strong ties with Spain, however. Indeed the visit made by King Juan Carlos and his wife just a few weeks ago was the first in over 25 years. On that occasion Sofia had hoped to visit the historic city of Tetouan, but in the end there wasn't time in her hectic schedule.

Lalla Salma wasn't about to let her friend go disapponted, though, so the two women arranged to meet up again this week. And it seems the two countries are set to take their friendship one step further, as Spanish and Moroccan politicians are currently hammering out plans to build a tunnel under the Straits of Gibraltar.

I think many of us were pleasantly surprised to see the warmth between Lalla Salma and Queen Sofia during the Spanish state visit in January. Considering the two women hadn't met each other before. Its nice to see they are following up on their first official meeting with this recent visit. Lalla Salma is indeed doing her part to improve her country's relationship with Spain. I knew all she needed was time to assert her presence as someone who could prove an asset to Morocco.
Good for her! and Queen Sofia too.
I like the two women more everytime I see them

Good point Humera. salma is doing her part to improve collaboration/relation between Spain and Morocco.
One article posted in "King Juan Carlos & Queen sofia thread" said: “Queen Sofia has initiated a visit by Algeria, Mauritania and Morocco, to accompany the projects carried out by the Spanish Agency for International Cooperation (AECI).”

For Salma, I don’t know if she follows (day by day) all projects in Morocco initiated by the foreign aid (like Belgium, Spain), is this the type of projects she carries or she does only accompany first ladies.

I think that for now Lalla Salma's duties within Morocco aren't that many. The King's sisters seem to have a more active role there.
I was hoping to see Salma accompany her husband abroad like his sisters have in the past. As far as I know, she has been to France once on her own, and once with King Muhammad. But there haven't been any major state visits from Morocco to other countries. If there is one perhaps we'll see Lalla Salma accompany her husband.
I dont think I've heard of any specific organizations or charities she patronizes.

It is strange between the images that I saw on the TV and the photos that have been mailed there is a big difference

On the TV lalla salma seemed embarrassed and very shy, she spoke little, and watched the camera with an anxious look, whereas on the photos she seems relaxed

I don't know if I must believe the photos or the images

lalla salma seems took weight, on the face and on the waist, maybe she is pregnant

It is precisely what I noticed, the photos give the impression that lalla salma was very relaxed whereas on the TVshe seemed embarrassed

The takchita that she wearied contrasts too much with the simplicity of the Spanish ladies ; she should wear it for a more prestigious opportunity (or perhaps she doesn't have a lot of opportunity to show hers most beautiful dresses )

I liked a lot the dressess of day of salma , the beige suit the one red and black are very elegant
when to say that salma plays a role in the reinforcement of the relations between the spain and morocco, I don't see on what that is basis
what salma do is the minimum that a first lady must do, to welcome a first lady who comes in her country
in all countries that the queen sofia visited, she is welcomed with a big smile, and queen sofia is always very agreeable with all those that she meets, not only with salma
queen sofia is a cordial woman that is in her nature

its great seeing salma... and its a pity she only is seen when other royal is in morocco and not on her own. i m sure she would make a great job as princess of morocco if they let her have her own engagements.

good remark isis, the kaftan and the jewelries of salma are too sumptuous and doesn't suit for this kind of dinner
it is so strange of one coast the queen so simple and on the other salma dressed like to go to a pomp dinner
