Moroccan Ambassador to Seoul Ahmed Bourzaim is currently receiving guests to its embassy in UN Village on the occasion of the birth of Princess Lalla Khadija.

On Feb. 28, 2007 Princess Lalla Khadija was born into the Moroccan royal couple of His Majesty King Mohammed VI and Her Royal Highness Princess Lalla Salma.

Scores of both local and international people keep visiting the Moroccan Embassy in Seoul to congratulate the birth of the Princess Lalla Khadija.

On March 5, 2007 Chairman Kim Hyun-Jung of HyunKang Group paid a visit to the Moroccan Embassy in Seoul's UN Village.

Chairman Kim visited the Moroccan mission on behalf of all the members of the Korea-Morocco Friendship Association (KMFA), for which Chairman Kim serves as secretary general.

Moroccans were in festive mood on the occasion of the birth of the second child of King Mohammed VI.

The baby was born at a clinic at the royal palace on Feb. 28 (Wednesday), 2007. The baby girl weighed slightly over four kilo grams at birth. Both the baby and her mother, Princess Lalla Salma, were in good health at the time.

Celebrations for the birth of a royal baby were comparable to the one marking the birth of her older brother three years ago.

Cannons fired 21 shots and national television showed images of the monarch holding the newborn as scores of Moroccan citizens gathered around the palace.

Princess Lalla Khadija's birth follows that of Crown Prince Moulay Hassan, named after King Mohammed's father Hassan II, in May 2003.

Meanwhile, King Mohammed VI pardoned 8,836 prisoners including 278 foreigners on the occasion of the birth of his daughter, announced Moroccan Justice Ministry on March 2, 2007.

This is the major pardon since Nov. 16, 2005. The King gave clemency to 10,000 detainees during the 50th independence anniversary of the Kingdom of Morocco.
