MOROCCO

Officially the Kingdom of Morocco, is a country in the Maghreb region of North Africa. Geographically, Morocco is characterized by a rugged mountainous interior and large portions of desert. It is one of only three countries (with Spain and France) to have both Atlantic and Mediterranean coastlines. The Arabic name al-Mamlakah al-Maghribiyah (Arabic: المملكة المغربية‎, meaning "The Western Kingdom") and Al-Maghrib (Arabic: المغرب‎, meaning "The West") are commonly used as alternate names. Morocco has a population of over 33.8 million and an area of 446,550 km2 . Its political capital is Rabat, although the largest city is CasablancaMorocco claims the non-self-governing territory of Western Sahara as its Southern Provinces. Morocco annexed the territory in 1975, leading to a guerrilla war with indigenous forces until a cease-fire in 1991.Peace processes have thus far failed to break the political deadlock.

This is my first airmail cover from Morocco, sent by Merouan Ball. He used the popular thematic stamp 'Arab Postal History joint issue ' stamps issued in 2012.
Thank You very much Mrouan for the nice cover.

This is my another cover sent by Asdaf from Agadir. She used two flora and fauna commemorative stamps.
