Morocco's King Mohammed VI took a seat at the African Union headquarters Tuesday for the first time in 33 years after being re-admitted by the bloc.

The monarch attended the closing ceremony of the summit where he was expected to deliver a speech a day after 39 of the AU's 54 member states agreed to allow Morocco back in the fold, despite stiff resistance from some over the status of Western Sahara.
